Specialist Books and Resources for Interpreters and Translators










Language Experts has a wide collection of current and relevant publications and reference materials on interpreting and translation from Australia and around the world.


If you are a practicing or an aspiring interpreter and/or translator, you will benefit from the most informative and educational books and publications published in recent times in Australia and around the world. 

Two such book are our own publications titled  a "Training Handbook for Legal and Court Interpreters in Australia", by Mary Vasilakakos, and the "A Training Handbook for Health and Medical Interpreters in Australia" also by Mary Vasilakakos. These publications are the first of their kind and part

of a series of training handbooks published by Language Experts specifically developed for interpreters working in the legal and court settings and

the health and medical settings in Australia.   

Both books contain original material developed to provide the trainee interpreter/translator with a quality professional development program which covers the fundamental and foundation professional principles, concepts, debates and issues current in the Australian interpreting and translation profession in general, and in interpreting and translation in legal and court setting and the health and medical settings in particular.

These professional development training publications are designed to give trainees a solid understanding of these principles, concepts, debates and issues, so that they may confidently apply them to the professional day to day practice.   

The author of the book, Mary Vasilakakos is a senior educator with extensive experience in Higher Education teaching, curriculum development

and course design, and course coordination and administration. She is a foundation member in the field of bilingual education in translating and

Interpreting in Australia, having worked in this field since its inception in the late 1970's and early 1980's. She is also the co-author of the seminal textbook "Liaison Interpreting, a Handbook."
