The fruit of eight years' work by two lifelong practitioners and trainers, these books contain the most complete description to date of a training course for professional conference interpreters. After an overview of the diverse profession of interpreting, the successive chapters of the Complete Course take students and their instructors in carefully designed stages from admission through initiation into the main modes of consecutive, simultaneous and more complex or hybrid variants, to exposure to real situations and the practical challenges and professional and ethical judgments they may entail. Detailed exercises presenting incremental and increasingly realistic challenges are provided at each stage, with theoretical underpinnings. The Trainer's Guide parallels the progression with in-depth guidance for instructors, fuller reference to the literature and chapters on curriculum design, the place of theory and research, institutional and course management issues and further and teacher training. These books propose a significant update of the traditional training paradigm in response to changing trends in pedagogy, regulatory reform and new conditions and demands on interpreters, notably in the areas of language enhancement, student-focused learning and assessment and certification.
The contents of the book are assembled from selected papers presented during the International Conference on Isotopes in Environmental Studies - AQUATIC FORUM 2004 convened in Monaco from 25 to 29 October 2004, which was the most important gathering of the year of isotope environmental scientists. The book reviews the present state of the art isotopic methods for better understanding of key processes in the aquatic environment, responsible for its future development and its protection.
Formal Methods For Open Object-based Distributed Systems Iv : Ifip Tc/wg6.1 Fourth International Conference On Formal Methods For Open Object-based Distributed Systems: September 6-8, 2000, Stanford, California, U. S. A.
Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems IV presents the leading edge in the fields of object-oriented programming, open distributed systems, and formal methods for object-oriented systems. With increased support within industry regarding these areas, this book captures the most up-to-date information on the subject. Papers in this volume focus on the following specific technologies: components; mobile code; JavaA(R); The Unified Modeling Language (UML); refinement of specifications; types and subtyping; temporal and probabilistic systems. This volume comprises the proceedings of the Fourth International Workshop on Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems (FMOODS 2000), which was sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and held in Stanford, California, USA, in September 2000.
