Abstract

To evaluate strategies and difficulties in simultaneous interpreting from German into Italian, a comparative analysis was carried out in which the interpreting performance of three groups, namely (a) students, (b) graduates and (c) experienced interpreters was compared and contrasted. The study has identified certain problems and tentatively suggested solutions to overcome them. It corroborated the hypothesis that in interpreting from German into Italian verb anticipation is a greater problem for students than for professional interpreters who use context and their feeling for the language to anticipate correctly. The study has highlighted some of the differences between the interpreting performances of students and interpreters based on cognitive and language specific elements. It shows some of the strategies that students must build up to cope with specific difficulties. To this end, problem-oriented training should be given greater importance, as it helps to recognize, separate and focus on single difficulties thus facilitating and fostering a conscious development of diversified simultaneous interpreting strategies.
