Training of interpreters for International Army Games
This study considers the process of training of language support specialists for International Army Games (IAG) as well as its problems. General information on IAG (history, fields, geography, organisational structure, etc.) is given with its correlation to the language support tasks. In connection with the annually increasing interest in this type of competition (17 participating countries in 2015 and 32 in 2020) and, accordingly, increasing needs for interpreters, justifies the relevance of this study. Specific IAG situations where translation is being carried out are given. The scientific novelty of the study lies in the low degree of coverage of the topic and the lack of a centralized algorithm for the preparation of interpreters for this international event. Considering the nature of the linguistic tasks performed during the preparation and conduct of the IAG, the basic requirements to the specialists being sent are formed. The experience of participation as an interpreter at the IAG is presented and analyzed, the problematic issues in terms of linguistic training and background knowledge are pointed out. A comparison of the two methods of training interpreters involved in the IAG, the main advantages and disadvantages of each of the two methods is given. As a result of the above-mentioned analysis a list of recommendations on the preparation of specialists in linguistic support for IAG is formed, taking into account the specific situations in which the translation is carried out. A conclusion about the further development of this direction and the ways of solving the indicated problems is made.
