"I Never Said That!" The Problem of Translated Records of Interpreted Police Interviews with Police Suspects

On Wednesday 16 June 2010 Krzysztof Kredens from the Centre for Linguistic Studies, Aston University, will examine what problems can arise in the translation of tape-recorded interpreter-mediated police interviews when the translator has to rely solely on the transcript and has no access to the original recordings.
