It is merely 2 decades since interpreting corpus and relevant researches made their debut.At present, the number of interpreting corpus(both finished and unfinished) is less than 10, the largest being no more than 1 million words, and characterized by one single category(conference interpreting) and simple tagging.The corpus-based interpreting studies, consequently, focus on either the linguistic features of interpreting texts or interpreting processing.The construction of future interpreting corpus, therefore, should highlight the following issues: multicategory corpus of different nature, larger corpus size, more exact tagging and transcription of paralinguistic expressions(pauses, fillers, ellipses, etc.),information equivalence in interpreting corpus, and R ＆ D of searching tools for interpreting corpus.Meanwhile, corpus-based interpreting studies should adopt multiple approaches to explore such key issues as textualities of interpreting texts, interpreting strategies, and relevant interpreting theories and terms(their confirmation and development) so as to promote the coordinated development of interpreting studies and teaching.
