This collection addresses translation and interpreting in settings of diversity and migration. It brings together the latest research on public service interpreting and translation (PSIT) in the context of growing rights-based discourses on language support services, with a particular focus on ideological, ethical and policy issues. Articles in this volume employ new perspectives and draw insight from the practical field with the aim to explore the social basis and consequences of policy development, interconnections between intricate concepts of ethics and ideology, and to stimulate debate : more discussion concerning public service interpreting and translation among academia, the public and the third sectors to deepen the understanding of language support needs and policy context.
