During the past few decades the theory of interpreting has made tremendous strides. One of the regularly recurring themes in this field is that of directionality and the associated issue of whether preference should be given to interpreting into the B-language (“retour”) or into the A-language (“native”). There is a wide range of opinions on this matter and the arguments in favour of or against (the quality of) retour interpreting are in many cases very subjective and emotionally charged. This volume on interpreting into B aims to contribute to these discussions by having various authors look at the problem from different angles. [Source: Publisher information]
