Specialist Books and Resources for Interpreters and Translators​

In addition to delivering interpreting and translation services as well as professional development, revalidation and preparatory training services, the company is an independent publisher of books and resources and also 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 books are our own independently published textbooks titled:  

A Training Handbook for Legal and Court Interpreters in Australia, by M.Vasilakakos, published in January 2015 and 

A Training Handbook for Health and Medical Interpreters in Australia, by M. Vasilakakos, published in January 2016.  

These two  publications are part of a series of training handbookss published by Language Experts specifically developed for interpreters working in the legal and court settings as well as the health and medical settings in Australia.    

Both books are 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 settings as well as 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. 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."    The books are edited by Silvana Pavlovska. The books are catalogued with the National Library of Australia and available for purchase in paperback as well as E-book, directly from us or our distributor, Coinfo.
