What We Do & How to Collaborate

Interpreter Commons is a dedicated website to

  1. Publish and access free, curated, dedicated articles by and for interpreting practitioners, consultants, and students under our Library with a special focus on how digitalization impacts our profession. Interpreters are invited to publish their articles here under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License. If you want to share your written piece,  please write to contactic@translationcommons.org.
  2. Enhance the visibility of interpreting practitioners, consultants, and students by publishing their articles under our Library section following the same procedure as above.
  3. Be a place the professional interpreter wants to turn to for Useful Links. Interpreters are invited to add more!
  4. Provide access to a wider audience to the most interesting content shared in the LinkedIn group Interpreting Think Tank.
  5. Enhance the visibility of Institutional Research with a special focus on research in the field of new interpreting technologies.
  6. All Community Players (LSPs, associations, technology providers) are invited to publish their written contributions in our Guest Publications section. If you are interested, please write to contactic@translationcommons.org.
  7. Last but not least, provide a home by and for interpreters laying the foundations for a collaborative commons. If you are an interpreting student, practitioner, or consultant, we are eager to hear your ideas for the inception of working groups/projects to help shape the future of interpreting.
