Meeting Description:

Questions in Process Oriented Research on Translation and Interpreting

Process oriented research on translation and interpreting has developed strongly during the last decades, partly thanks to the availability of new research methods, including new methods for on-line data collection. Important advances have been made using e.g. introspective methods, key- logging of the writing process, and eye-tracking. Questions addressed have included problems and strategies, working memory constraints in the process, monitoring, revising and self-repairs, but also aspects such as the use of tools in the process, the role of creativity, and the processing of particular textual aspects.

This conference has a strong focus on both texts and processes and explores the possibilities for studying both aspects in combination.

Call for Papers:

We particularly welcome presentations addressing issues like:

-Possibilities and limits of inferring processes from texts
-Possibilities and limits in using process data to explain and predict textual characteristics
-Triangulation of different methods, for studying both text and process
