What is Interpretation? Interpretation is simply an approach to communication. Most people think of it as the process through which a person translates one language into another, for example Spanish to English or English to Spanish. At its most basic level, that's exactly what interpretation is, translating. Environmental interpretation involves translating the technical language of a natural science or related field into terms and ideas that people who aren't scientists can readily understand. And it involves doing it in a way that's entertaining and interesting to these people. Simply put, that's the topic of this book.
