From 10-minute wedding ceremonies to three-week spa treatment programs
The practice of sign language interpreting in Austria has undergone dramatic changes since 1996. Interpreters have attended further education courses, founded an Interpreter Association, and started to work on systematically defining their profession. However, we still do not know much about the kind of work they do. This paper presents a comprehensive empirical study of the assessments of sign language interpreters in the region of Styria, using the concept of social systems as a theoretical framework.
