In fact, thought description and negotiation of observations did not lead so far to objective results, they shared replicable experience and results. They also potentially indicate that re-mapping practices are a function of experience and that re-mapping to a source-language target domain could create more uncertainty than generic-level re-mapping. The volume builds on the notion of triangulation, i. Versions of conceptual metaphor theory have been applied in various productoriented studies of how translators deal with the challenge of metaphor in translation. The analysis of results suggests that post-graduate students ''have insufficient confidence in their linguistic abilities'' p. The receipt of individual books cannot be separately acknowledged and no book can be returned to the publisher. His research interests are focused on empirical-experimental research of the translation process and on the development of expertise in translation.
A glossary of language and mind. Note especially that by accepting a book the Editor implies no promise that it will be reviewed in this journal. Grouped in three parts, the seven contributions raise issues concerned, among others, with the translation-pragmatics interface, the role of inter-subjectivity, the attempts at modeli. The Routledge Handbook of Translation Studies is an indispensable resource for postgraduate students of translation studies. Note especially that by accepting a book the Editor implies no promise that it will be reviewed in this journal.
It will be of interest to postgraduates and academics researching in this area. Geburtstag von Christiane Nord, 31-52. Brunette, Louise; Georges Bastin; Isabelle Hemlin; and Heather Clarke eds. Aoun, Joseph, and Yen-hui Audrey Li. Are Primary Conceptual Metaphors Easier to Understand than Complex Conceptual Metaphors? The authors look at various languages and utilize a variety of approaches, qualitative and quantitative, reflecting the breadth of the field and providing many valuable examples of the methodology at work. Finally, the book clearly shows that research is indissolubly lied to the process oriented approach and gives numerous cues for exploring the importance and the complexity of cognitive processes in translation. Aitchison, Jean, and Diana M.
As a result, the notions of revision and interpersonal competences have gained great importance with international projects recognizing them as high priorities. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as quality management, translation tests, and competency-based assessments, this book is geared towards translators, interpreters, linguists, academicians, translation and interpreting researchers, and students seeking current research on the new ways of evaluating students as well as suggesting criteria for professional quality control in translation. The book will certainly find an audience among translation scholars doing experimental work and students and practitioners interested in capturing the translation process. In the next paper, The influence of working memory features on some formal aspects of translation performance pp. The receipt of individual books cannot be separately acknowledged and no book can be returned to the publisher. Results suggest that processing effort in translation is greater in instances of procedural than conceptual encodings.
This article aims at revisiting the literature in the area known as translation process studies and discusses the achievements and shortcomings observed in the last two decades of research. Aitchison, Jean, and Diana M. The authors conclude their interesting analysis underlining that the ability in manipulating procedurally and conceptually encoded information leads to the context, implicatures and explicatures, of source text expressible in different environments, then, in different target texts. The congress's main theme, namely Translating the Millennium: Corpora, Cognition and Cultures is reflected in the seven contributions which aim at fostering the dialogue among translation researchers interested in process-oriented investigations. In Susanne Gopferich, Arnt L. Baer, Brian James, and Geoffrey S. Reviews are printed as circumstances permit.
Any errors therein should be reported to them. Triangulating translation: Perspectives in process oriented research. It can be defined as the use of corpus linguistic technologies to inform and elucidate the translation process, something that is increasingly accessible through advances in computer technology. The morphosyntax of complement-head sequence: Clause structure and word order patterns in Kwa. The contributions are grouped into four main sections: methodological issues, computer assistance, eye-tracking and, lastly, the roles of precision, strategies and quality assessment in translation. By reviewing the literature on cognitive segmentation in translation and on translation technology, it discusses the possible implications that the use of translation memory systems may have on the performance of translators.
Please note that it may not be complete. Mees are two complementary volumes containing empirical studies by scholars working in the field of translation process research. Finally, the two articles in the third part promote the use of triangulation as a pedagogical instrument. Five final year translator students and five professional translators translated two texts from Danish into English and two from English into Danish. The volume also examines the process of translation in terms of relevant measurements which can validate some of the instruments used in the triangulation approach and fosters the application of triangulation as a pedagogical instrument to be applied to translators' training.

The last part of the chapter deals with the modification we have introduced in our 1998 translation competence model as a result of the first exploratory studies.
