This is because discourse-external factors will impinge on the understanding of the discourse itself. How much an interpreter understands the ‘language’ of the speaker will be determined by how many of the extra linguistic requirements that interpreter meets. Once again, referring to Grice’s 18 Community Interpreting (1975) cooperative principle, we assume that the speakers want to be understood and will be partly responsible for the hearer’s comprehension ability. The following examples from interpreted data illustrate how misunderstanding occurs due to different sources.

The interpreter’s rendition is also contemporaneous, unrehearsed and aided only by the context (Hatim and Mason, 1990). The other activities, such as subtitling, sight translation, simultaneous interpreting and long consecutive interpreting, fall in between. It could be argued that there is less time to prepare in simultaneous interpreting than short consecutive interpreting. However, when discussing simultaneous interpreting, I refer to the activity performed in the context of Conference Interpreting, where the interpreter is – or should be – provided with preparation material beforehand.

Similarly, ‘No give-I more’ is a literal translation of the Spanish No doy más, which adequately translated would read, ‘I’m dead tired’. There are some instances where a literal translation will make sense semantically and even pragmatically, but these are rare. Most untrained, ‘natural’ interpreters, to use Harris and Sherwood’s (1978) term, or novice interpreters, take a middle approach, aiming for translation at the sentence level and producing a semantic rendition. By this I mean a rendition that is grammatical in the target language, conveys a message that on the surface, and out of context, may appear to be correct, but that fails to capture the original intention, its illocutionary point and force.
