What’s in a name?
Would that which we call an interpreter by any other name talk as sweet?

Interpreters can be defined by the mode they work in a simultaneous interpreter or a dialogue interpreter — by the setting they work in — a conference interpreter or a court interpreter, or by one of their working languages, e.g., sign language interpreter. In this talk, I will discuss cognitive aspects of the interpreting tasks and what it can tell us about a variety of different areas in interpreting, I will also briefly touch upon why certain labels for interpreters are misnomers.
