Paraphrasing exercises and training for Chinese to English consecutive interpreting
This study investigates the effectiveness of incorporating paraphrasing exercises into interpreter training, specifically in relation to interpreting from Chinese to English. owever, there is a lack of empirical data supporting the use of paraphrasing exercises in interpreter training. The quantitative and qualitative data collected from 85 interpreter trainees in this study suggest that paraphrasing may be an effective teaching approach, especially when trainees are learning to interpret from a high-context language to a low-context language. The data suggest that paraphrasing exercises benefit learners abilities to process the source language at both the structural and informational levels, as paraphrasing in interpreter training is not limited to semantic and syntactic changes. The articulation and checking of the paraphrased version also help to enhance source language comprehension and organization, leading to a better rendition in a different language.
