In the context of the interpreting profession, mentoring is a goal-oriented relationship between two interpreters: a mentor and a second individual, referred to, here, as an intern, who seeks to learn and grow through association with that mentor. Whether a novice or an experienced professional, within the mentorship the intern is the learner. The mentor has more experience, skill, or knowledge, either of interpreting in general, or of some specific aspect of interpreting. Mentoring is not a substitute for comprehensive interpreter education or for the internships and practicums associated with such formal training. Mentoring can augment the training received in academic settings.
