Forthcoming: Cognitive Translatology: Empirical and interdisciplinary paradigms

᠎ Tra&Co Group  

Synopsis

Cognitive aspects of the translation process have become central in Translation and Interpreting Studies in recent years, further establishing the field of Cognitive Translatology. Empirical and interdisciplinary studies investigating translation and interpreting processes promise a hitherto unprecedented predictive and explanatory power. This collection contains such studies which observe behaviour during translation and interpreting. The contributions cover a vast area and investigate behaviour during translation and interpreting – with a focus on training of future professionals, on language processing more generally, on the role of technology in the practice of translation and interpreting, on translation of multimodal media texts, on aspects of ergonomics and usability, on emotions, self-concept and psychological factors, and finally also on revision and post-editing. For the present publication, we selected a number of contributions presented at the Second International Congress on Translation, Interpreting and Cognition hosted by the Tra&Co Lab at the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz.

᠎ Tra&Co Group

The Tra&Co Group is well-versed in empirical translation process research, computer-aided translation workflows, translation competence studies and research on accessible communication. Funded by the Gutenberg Research College, the Tra&Co Lab offers the Group a world of empirical methods ranging from eye-tracking, to key-logging and EEG facilities. The Tra&Co Group consists of a young team of doctoral and post-doctoral researchers and has specialised in combining product- and process-based methods in multi-method and interdisciplinary approaches. The inspiring and fruitful research atmosphere which evolved around the Tra&Co Group has resulted in numerous high-quality publications, which are well received throughout the international research community.
