This volume brings together cognitive psychologists, interpreting scholars and translation researchers, who look at the process phenomena involved in translation and interpreting (T/I) from various linguistic vantage points.
The focus is on methodology and the problems that loom large in a multidisciplinary discipline. The authors include Annette de Groot, Juliane House, Kirsten Malmkjaer and Miriam Shlesinger.
The topics discussed range from simultaneous interpreting, subtitling, translating in pairs, the sub-skills involved in T/I, to expertise and management issues.
Three major challenges emerge from T/I process research as it is portrayed in this book:
- How to maintain a clear vision of the object of study?
- How to ensure methodological sobriety?
- How to transfer the emerging knowledge of expertise to translation pedagogy?

Table of Contents
“[...] this volume provides a theoretical analysis of empirical research on processes and strategies in translation and interpreting, and it presents us with studies on how processing problems are handled. In addition to its obvious theoretical value, the book is also very helpful in terms of pedagogy and translation teaching since the findings are thought-provoking and may help teachers identify highly promising techniques and strategies for training purposes.”
