摘要: Conference interpreting as a profession is some 50 years old. This paper will look at the role played by AIIC (Association Internationale des Interpr鑤es de Conf閞ence1 ) in creating and establishing that profession. It will also discuss the attributes that define a profession and result in recognition by practitioners and non-practitioners alike. These include a code of ethics, a training paradigm, recognisable working practices and a professional association to which most practitioners belong. The paper will conclude by looking at where the profession stands now, its strengths, the challenges facing it and how it may develop in the future.
