Tapping and Mapping the Processes of Translation and Interpreting: Outlooks on Empirical Research
Sonja Tirkkonen-Condit, Riitta Jääskeläinen
John Benjamins Publishing, 2000 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 176 pages
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?
