The Foundations of 21st Century Interpretation competency descriptions (see below) focus on the evolution of interpretive concepts and the skills and abilities an interpreter should strive to develop. Interpreters who have practiced the craft for a while will recognize many time-honored concepts, and find others strengthened, transformed, or shifted. The Tradition and Transition document aims to provide a reference for interpreters to identify familiar concepts within the continuously evolving Foundations document. It also aspires to provoke discussion within the field about how these ideas are evolving with time, global trends, research, and engagement with our audiences.
