Language Interpreters to Be Featured in New Book

NASHUA, N.H., July 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The publication of a new book that will showcase interpreters and their contributions to society was announced today. "From Our Lips to Your Ears: How Interpreters are Changing the World" marks the first published compendium of stories about this unique and complex profession from the perspective of interpreters themselves.

"Millions of people throughout the world communicate each day without sharing a common language," explained Nataly Kelly, editor of the publication. "This book shines a light on the unsung heroes that enable much of this communication to take place."

The book will include personal anecdotes from interpreters working in an array of settings, Kelly said. "Interpreters are out there each day, helping deliver babies, interpreting witness testimony, rendering the words of foreign diplomats, and assisting consumers who wish to purchase goods and services."

The stories in the collection will cover a wide range of topics of interest to the general public, Kelly pointed out. "This book shows how interpreters are helping meet a basic human need: the need to communicate with others."

More information about the book is available at The web site also provides detailed information for interpreters who would like to share their stories for possible publication in the book.
