Annotation: 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 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: (1) How to maintain a clear vision of the object of study? (2) How to ensure methodological sobriety? (3) How to transfer the emerging knowledge of expertise to translation pedagogy?
