Hello,

I need some sources (books, articles, websites) regarding types of audience (recipients) in oral translation. They can be in English or in Polish. Can anyone help me?

Greetings,

Hi, for what purpose -- it is important. Mar 18, 2013

For interpretation purposes, there is nothing really to read about -- unless you are working on some kind of a thesis. It can be summarized in two sentences. You have to say exactly whatever the speaker is saying in exactly the sam register, so I don't really know how audience can be of any importance here. The speaker chooses the register -- not you. If he decided to speak at a seminar, in a colloquial language you have to speak in a colloquial language as well, although this is very unlikely. You even have to translate various profanities and curses in court, if a mentally unstable litigant decided to use them.
