Macnamee, Térence. 1999. Le rapporteur et l'interprète de conférence [Rapporteurs and conference interpreters]. Meta 44 (2) : 280–294.


The translator-interpreter has been characterised as a rapporteur. This article studies the work of the conference rapporteur in the light of what has been written about the work of the conference interpreter. It outlines a working method for the rapporteur who participates in public or internal consultation activities. The rapporteur operates in two sorts of time: in real (non-reversible) time, during the actual meeting, and in reversible time, after the meeting, when he does his analysis of the data. This analysis is done by linguistic techniques. The working in two sorts of time is made possible by the computer. .
