This is a free, community-driven Q&A website about interpreting, i.e. spoken language translation.
The target community for this site is composed of professional or occasional interpreters, interpreting students, their trainers but also buyers and users of interpreting services and other stakeholders in the conference industry, such as event planners, convention centres, standardisers and equipment suppliers.
We invite each of them to contribute their questions and answers to the site.
So What? Who cares? Isn’t this just like a dozen other websites?
What’s so special about interpreting.info? Well, nothing, really. But the technology powering this site integrates aspects of wikis, blogs, forums, RSS, social networks and Digg/Reddit in a way that we think helps produce and deliver better information.
Interpreting.info is somewhere in the middle.
But hopefully you’ll see what we mean when you participate and experience it for yourself.
Who are the moderators?
We believe good moderation starts with the community itself, so in addition to privileges earned through karma, we will hold democratic moderator elections.
Until the site is large enough to support an election, we will appoint likely moderators from within the volunteers who helped bootstrap this site.
