Translation and Cognition assesses the state of the art in cognitive translation and interpreting studies by examining three important trends: methodological innovation, the evolution of research design, and the continuing integration of translation process research results with the core findings of the cognitive sciences. Several of the volume’s essays focus on fruitful new process research methods, such as eye tracking and keystroke logging that have arisen to supplement the use of think-aloud protocols. Another set of contributions investigates how some central theories, concepts, and methods from our sister disciplines of psycholinguistics, cognitive psychology, and neuroscience can inform our understanding of translation processes and their development in novices and experts. Yet another set of essays argues that methodological innovation and integration with the cognitive sciences can lead to more robust research designs and theoretical frameworks to explain the intricacies of cognitive processing during translation and interpreting. Thus, this timely volume actively demonstrates that a new theoretical and methodological consensus in cognitive translation studies is emerging, promising to greatly improve the quality, verifiability, and generalizability of translation process research.

Table of Contents
“In this book, findings from studies conducted with methodological triangulation help us gain a better understanding of the potential of newly adopted technologies such as eye tracking for the investigation of translation cognition. The book also offers interesting and useful ideas on expertise and how to develop it, as well as up-to-date information on neurophysiological correlates of translation activity, a developing field. Highly recommended reading.”
“[...] this volume not only reports on cognitive-based experiments dealing with various topics in which multiple research methods are used; it also goes a step further and proposes how translation studies can benefit from the integration of both theoretical and methodological developments in neighbouring disciplines such as cognitive sciences. The cognitive approach to translation studies has yielded many interesting results so far but there is no doubt that this approach opens may future research possibilities, not only in written translation and interpreting (as shown in this volume) but also in almost uncharted territories such as audiovisual translation.”
“Gregory M. Shreve and Erik Angelone present a state-of-the-art account of the field of translation and cognition. The authors provide a carefully edited, excellent overview of this complex and challenging domain and its recent developments. Their book can be highly recommended for all those concerned with translation, cognitive science, and psychology.”
Translation and Cognition is a major state-of-the-art contribution by leading researchers to understanding how the human mind manages the process of communicating meaning across languages. In the modern world we are all engaged in translation and interpreting whenever we try to make sense of the unfamiliar utterances we encounter every day. This makes the anthology a key text for understanding a fundamental feature of our contemporary reality.”
“[...] Translation and Cognition of ATA Scholarly Monograph Series XV is easily accessible in content and style although it is based on a variety of paper- writings approaches to the main prevailing concern, which is Translation and Cognition. This feature categorizes the volume for specialized readers including also students involved in such studies, and experts of the field as well who encourage such studies. In terms of contents the book encompasses a variety of academic papers presenting material, which offers insight into questions related to state of art in cognitive translation and interpreting studies.”
“[...] the overarching thrust of this volume is not so much about discussing competing frameworks for project management in the language industry, but about how generic project management frameworks, as represented by the PMBOK, can be used and adapted in the context of translation and localization. [...] I definitely recommend this volume for scholars, practitioners, and students. It is accessible, well-written, and well-edited throughout. I see it as a solid contribution to the literature on applied translation studies. The volume has a solid introduction, a clear organization, and the topics and authors chosen represent some of the more important scholars and practitioners in the industry.”
“The articles, written by respected industry experts, provide valuable information both of the general project management techniques documented in the PMBOK and of localization-specific issues related to project management. This information would be extremely useful to any novel localization project manager.”
