Is there any clear & reliable history of interpreting? I need scientific articles about the history of interpreting.

On this website you will find a number of publications listed on the topic.

http://aiic.net/section/1478/

Apart from that I would write to AIIC headquarters in Geneva to find out whether they have any articles or other publications in their archives - I think they have a collection of publications.

Other than that I am sure a number of master theses must have been written on the history of interpreting - you might want to contact the training institutes and universities.

Good Luck!
