CALL FOR PAPERS

Scholars from Translation Studies and other disciplines (such as Sociology or Communication Studies) areincreasingly becoming more interested in the multi-faceted andthought-provokingtopic of interpreting and translation provided by non-professionals of any age and background, with or without remuneration, under a variety of circumstances, and for a wide spectrum of reasons.Non-professional interpreting and translation (NPIT) is widespread enoughtoallow us to see translation and interpreting not only as recognized and established professions, but also as a ubiquitous social practice of much-needed mediation. In this context, one might attempt to investigate NPIT not merely as an opposite, and perhaps problematic, or even renegade,pole to professional mediation, but as ‘unstated’ mediation. NPIT presents an acceptable practice, which, however, remainsless visible and less appreciated not only by professionals and society in general, but even by non-professional interpreters and translators themselves.
