Abstract

This article builds on previous research on ad-hoc interpreting in German hospitals. It discusses the concept of interpreters as “intervenient beings” and its consequences for interpreter training. Although the concept seems to be descriptively adequate, it disregards difficulties of interpreters with their active engagement in communication of others. After discussing two types of active engagement, the article makes suggestions for interpreter training.
