From tech giants to plucky startups, the world is full of companies boasting that they are on their way to replacing human interpreters, but are they right? Interpreters vs Machines offers a solid introduction to recent theory and research on human and machine interpreting, and t...hen invites the reader to explore the future of interpreting. With a Foreword by Dr Henry Liu, the 13th FIT President and written by consultant interpreter and researcher Jonathan Downie, this book offers a unique combination of research and practical insight into the field of interpreting. Written in an innovative, accessible style with humorous touches and real-life case studies, this book is structured around the metaphor of playing and winning a computer game. It takes interpreters of all experience levels on a journey to better understand their own work, learn how computers attempt to interpret and explore possible futures for human interpreters. With five levels, split into fourteen chapters, Interpreters vs Machines is key reading for all professional interpreters, as well as students and researchers of Interpreting and Translation Studies.
