Research Summary

Most of my research can be split into three main areas:

  • Church interpreting, church interpreter training and the theology of interpreting
  • How organisations adopt interpreting and adapt to it
  • The link between interpreting research and practice
  • Conference interpreting.

Most of these are likely to appear at some point on the blog. My work has also been published in:


Interpreting: International Journal of Research and Practice in Interpreting

Physics Education

Pneuma Review

ITI Bulletin

Linguist List

Speculative Grammarian

  1. Jonathan,
    At our church we offer simultaneous interpreting into Spanish. So that’s US English into Spanish for the US market, for fairly long sermons: about 45 minutes, whenever someone needing it asks for it. Perhaps our experience would be useful if you are looking for examples of how churches handle interpreting.

  2. Hi!

    My name is Li Hang, a postgraduate student studying Translation and Interpreting at Newcastle University in the UK, I am doing my graduation project(case study of my own performance) on Simultaneous Interpreting Religion-related Topics.

    I have great difficulties in finding related scholar works as well as building a theory framework. I am so thrilled in finding your blog and I hope you could send me some of your researches or refer me some useful works.

    Thank you sooo much for your help in advance and it feels great to know someone else in this world also takes time to do this thing, I don’t feel silly anymore!

    My email is: h.li16@newcastle.
