In this paper, the author argues for a revised understanding of interpreting as a comprehensively collaborative activity. In presenting this case, he focuses on the interpreter’s role as a weaver-together of narratives and a connector of people. He stress the interpreter’s task of working with others, i.e. actively bringing them into the process of negotiating meaning, to share triadic communicative events where participants constantly align and re-align themselves in complex kaleidoscopic ways to achieve their collective communicative goals. Building on previous work, he works towards the notion of a cycle of empowerment, reinforcing the imperative to work closely with the full range of relevant stakeholders to construct, implement and refine a shared understanding of roles and responsibilities.
