Olympic Interpreting : a Guide to the Olympic Movement for Conference Interpreters

Abstract As truly global institutions, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the modern Olympic Games depend on the services of professional conference interpreters. Starting from the premise that conference interpreters are likely to perform better if they are familiar with the topic and the environment in which they operate, this study aims to give an introduction to the Olympic Movement and to show how interpreting is organised at the IOC and the Olympic Games. Besides analysing various documents and critical literature to explain key concepts, documents, institutions and events that are part of the Olympic system, this thesis sheds new light on the interpreting service by interviewing an authoritative expert in the field. As a result, interpreters who consider working for the Olympic system can use this text to find useful preparatory information on the topic and on their potential workplace.
