Hammouda Salhi[1] (حمّودة الصّالحي in Arabic) (born 1976) is a Tunisian linguist, interpreter and a professor of interpreting studies. He has developed a theory of complementary polysemy in the translation and interpreting practice.[2][3][4].


Hammouda Salhi[5] has a BA in Translation, an MA in Linguistics and a PhD in Translation Studies. He is the founder of Turjuman Project[6] for translation training and research.

He is the Director of the Master’s Program in Translation and Interpreting at the University of Tunis El Manar, Tunisia, and is a member of the International Union of Translation[7]

He has studied extensively the theory of meaning between two unrelated languages, namely Arabic and English, based on the professional experience he has gained over the years as a translator, interpreter and language expert. His experience and research focused mainly on aspects of English-Arabic legal language, business, mediation, diplomatic relations, and cross-cultural issues.

He investigated extensively an area at the crossroads of interpreting practice, mainly simultaneous interpreting, the lexis, travel and interpreting[8], and translational competence.

He is known for developing a theory of complementary polysemy for the practice and teaching of translation and interpreting. This theory is the outcome of the practice of meaning negotiation in the translation exercise. Salhi is also a cross-cultural communication expert, mainly on issues involving Western and Arabic cultures[9]. He received accreditations from many United Nations agencies, the World Bank, and so on. He is a founding member of the editorial boards of many refereed journals, such as the board of Translation and Translanguaging in Multilingual Contexts (TTMC)[10], John Benjamins Publishing Company.

He has compiled and created the English-Arabic Parallel Corpus of United Nations Texts[11], one of the biggest English-Arabic Parallel corpora.

Interpreting for high-profile leaders

He has interpreted for high-profile leaders directly and in relay, such as current Russian President Vladimir Putin (relay), all succesive Tunisian Presidents and Prime Misnisters, former German President Joachim Gauck (relay), and former and current UN Secretaries General Ban Ki-Moon[12] and António Guterres[13]
