Speeches by politicians, interviews conducted with politicians, and press conferences are typical discursive events in the domain of politics. In an increasingly globalized world, politics is increasingly international in nature. Communicating across national borders involves communicating across languages, which also means that translation and interpreting, very frequently, play a significant role in political settings. Moreover, institutional types of discourse in the domain of politics, such as speeches and press conferences, are closely linked to media types of discourse, such as news reports and comments. Media texts draw upon, reorganize, and transform different discourses in constructing the political events, and such transformations have an effect on the construction of politics and politicians.
