Resum: The aim of the present study is to publish the principal objectives, methodology and results of the project Traducció i Immigració: la formació de traductors i intèrprets per als serveis públics, noves solucions per a noves realitats (Translation and Immigration: the training of public service translators and interpreters, new solutions for new scenarios). The overall objective of the project, which was carried out between 2009-10, was to assemble and analyse a significant corpus of empirical data on the state of Public Service Interpreting and Translating (PSTI) in Catalonia from the perspective of the three agents participating in the communicative interaction: (a) the mediator-translator-interpreter (MTI), (b) the public services end-user and (c) the front-line public services provider. From the data obtained – both quantitative and qualitative – we were able not only to define the professional profile and practice of the public services translator and interpreter in Catalonia, but also to obtain a large quantity of objective information about the needs and preferences of the end-users and providers of public services, namely: the difficulties they encounter in their communication exchanges; the kind of mediation the two groups prefer; which foreign languages are most in demand; and the specific characteristics involved in each field of intervention.
