Table of contents
The volume is a collection of selected papers from the 1st Forlì Conference on Interpreting Studies (IS), which was held on 9–11 November 2000, and which attracted more than 130 attendees from over twenty countries. The idea, as explained in the introduction, was to examine the current situation and future prospects, as in the conferences of Venice (Gerver and Sinaiko 1978), Trieste (Gran and Dodds 1989), and Turku (Gambier et al. 1997). The resulting volume is composed of a foreword, an introduction, 24 papers, a common list of references, a name index and a subject index.
