Process oriented research on translation and interpreting has developed strongly during the last decades, partly thanks to the availability of new research methods, including new methods for on-line data collection. Important advances have been made using e.g. introspective methods, key- logging of the writing process, and eye-tracking. Questions addressed have included problems and strategies, working memory constraints in the process, monitoring, revising and self-repairs, but also aspects such as the use of tools in the process, the role of creativity, and the processing of particular textual aspects.
This conference has a strong focus on both texts and processes and explores the possibilities for studying both aspects in combination. We particularly welcome presentations addressing issues like
- possibilities and limits of inferring processes from texts
- possibilities and limits in using process data to explain and predict textual characteristics
- triangulation of different methods, for studying both text and process
