Simultaneous interpreting (SI) is a cognitively demanding task. This is why there are typically two interpreters working in a booth and taking turns every 30 minutes or so. Interpreters work in pairs not only to be able to overcome fatigue, but also to cooperate and help each other. This article is an attempt to shed some light on the process of booth teamwork. Cooperation in the booth is examined in the professional context, which leads to conclusions regarding the incorporation of this skill in conference interpreter training.A survey was conducted among 200 free-lance interpreters associated in AIIC and working on various markets to find out more about their expectations and needs as regards assistance from their booth partners. The respondents were asked about their mode of operation, activities in the booth when off-mike and their perception of the need to teach cooperation to interpretation trainees. It turns out that there are some factors that may impede teamwork in the simultaneous interpreting booth. Interpreters who are off-mike can engage in last-minute preparation using materials supplied by the organizers shortly before the commencement of a conference. Additionally, fatigue may prevent them from actively listening to the input and assisting their boothmate. The results of the survey may help answer the question if teamwork and turn-taking should be part of simultaneous interpreting courses.

A tanulmány Antoine Vergote több évtizedes, a vallás pszichológiájának európai fejlődésére nagy hatást gyakorló munkássága mentén ad betekintést ezen tudományterületbe, amely a hosszú elzártság következtében a magyar tudományos köztudatban csekély helyet kaphatott.Vergote széles elméleti háttérre támaszkodó életművén és pszichoanalitikus irányultságú iskolaalapító munkásságán keresztül ismertet meg a valláspszichológia úttörőjének sokszínű, empirikus kutatásokon alapuló tudományos módszereivel, előzetes megfontolásaival és több diszciplína megközelítését is inte_i

The monograph introduces the reader to the psychology of religion through the work of Antoine Vergote, a theoretician who has influenced the development of this discipline in Europe in fundamental ways for several decades. Behind the iron curtain, the importance of a psychology of religion was suppressed and its cultivation banished from the scope of research. On the solid basis of his life’s work and of his psychoanalytically oriented pioneering research, Vergote now presents the Hungarian reader with empirical methods of studying various cases, his preliminary considerations, and the results of his investigations supported by his insight into several disciplines. Vergote approaches definitions, symbols, and rituals from a wide theoretical foundation making use of different fields such as psychology, theology, and a religiously based and practically oriented pedagogy. While the author has developed a system of criteria to distinguish between healthy and pathological forms of religious practices, he points out that the adequate training of the practitioner is key to a successful treatment. Vergote’s works are now an indispensable resource for any research in the field connecting psychology and theology.

Abstract  

A review of selected parameters of the growth of scientific collaboration over the last century provides further confirmation of the dependency of teamwork on the increasing professionalization of science. Analysis reveals significant inaccuracies in current views of the recency and prevalence of collaborative research, and affords a more correct picture of twentieth century developments. A change in the growth rate of the practice of scientific collaboration at about the time of World War I, and indications of associations of teamwork with financial support and research publication in leading journals are discussed. Characteristics of the natural history of scientific collaboration signify that collaboration reflects relationships of dependency within a hierarchically stratified professional community, and serves as a means of professional mobility. As such, it continues to fulfil its original functions.

Abstract

Authors recapitulate knowledge of the clinical, iconographical and pathological diagnostics about mastopathy syndrome and the questions of its therapy and care. They establish that no unified nomenclature exists, all the disciplines judge the idea of mastopathy differently. The clinical and iconographical diagnostics are unsure, the right diagnostics is known only by the pathologist. The role of surgery is minimal. Precancerous character of mastopathy is discussed; rate of its malignant transformation is small. Malignant transformation of benign lesions is very seldom. The most important tools are close observation, systematic care of patients, which is teamwork, possibly by the same people, in the same institute. Further knowledge, exact definitions are necessary.

Abstract  

The effects of team consolidation and social integration on individual scientists’ activity and performance were investigated by analysing the relationships between these factors and scientists’ productivity, impact, collaboration patterns, participation in funded research projects and programs, contribution to the training of junior researchers, and prestige. Data were obtained from a survey of researchers ascribed to the Biology and Biomedicine area of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research, and from their curricula vitae. The results show that high levels of team consolidation and of integration of the scientist within his or her team are factors which might help create the most favourable social climate for research performance and productivity. Researchers who carried out their activity in a social climate characterized by these factors participated in more domestic research projects and supervised more doctoral dissertations than the rest of their colleagues. They were also more productive, as shown by the higher number of papers published in journals included in the Journal Citation Reports and the higher number of patents granted. These metrics are the main indicators taken into account in the evaluation of the research activity of Spanish scientists, and are therefore the activities that scientists invest the most energy in with a view to obtaining professional recognition. The results corroborate the importance of research teamwork, and draw attention to the importance of teamwork understood not as two or more scientists working together to solve a problem, but as a complex process involving interactions and interpersonal relations within a particular contextual framework

From 17 to 26 January 2000 some 330 people from all over the world participated in an on-line symposium on the general topic of training translators and interpreters. The main topics of debate included the use of teamwork in the classroom, class size, the accreditation of translators, how to teach literary translation, the changing role of media translation, the place of interpreting, the importance of dealing with neologisms, and the general impact of technology. In all cases the focus was on the way recent changes in the profession are or should be producing innovations in the way translators and interpreters are trained.
