Pöchacker attempts to establish criteria for assessing quality in simultaneous interpreting. He reviews some of the insights from previous studies (Cartellieri 1983, Gile 1983, 1990 and 1991, Bühler 1986, Kurz 1989, Meak 1990 and Kopczyński 1994) and points out the process-oriented nature of this research. The author emphasizes the need to inspect the actual product and advances a multi-parameter model for description and analysis. Parameters included are Addressees, Preplanning, Media use, Tempo, Melodic, Dynamic and Rhythmic accentuation of a speech, Voice quality and Articulation.
