Strategies are intentional and goal-oriented procedures for the solution or prevention of problems (Gile 2009: 200; Bartlomiejczyk 2006: 152). According to Gile (2009), the demanding working conditions of the interpreter (e.g., extreme time pressures, fast delivery, high information density, unfamiliar themes, etc.) may push their available processing capacity to the point of saturation, causing problems and cognitive overload. Additionally, the interpreter’s knowledge gaps may also pose problems. In order to solve or pre-empt those problems, interpreters can employ some of the strategies to be presented by Martin Soriano.
