Police interpreting and translating can be regarded as a sub-field of legal interpreting and translating. Although the ethical considerations in the police setting are largely in line with those in the broader field of legal interpreting and translating, careful attention is needed when working in this specialised field.
Dr Miranda Lai is a senior lecturer in Translating and Interpreting Studies at RMIT University. She has published widely in public service interpreting and its training. Her research interests include police interpreting, public service interpreting, and ethics for translators and interpreters. She is the co-author of Police Investigative Interviews and Interpreting: Context, Challenges, and Strategies and Ethics for Police Translators and Interpreters.
