This article presents an overview of the state of interpreting studies from the origins of the profession to the current state of the field. It explores the in-terconnection between interpreting and translation studies and the evolution of inter-preting into a field of study in its own right. Since interpreting is an interdisciplinary endeavor, this article argues for the need to continue to expand perspectives, paying special consideration to perspectives from related fields. It takes a closer look at interpreting as a situated practice, as it unfolds in courts of law, health care organi-zations, and business environments. It suggests the need for a deeper dialogue among all related disciplines and suggests a research agenda for the future.
