Abstract:

The Handbook of Translation and Cognition is a pioneering investigation of cognitive approaches to translation and interpreting studies (TIS). It offers timely and cutting-edge coverage of the most important theoretical frameworks and methodological innovations in the field. It contains 30 original contributions from a global group of leading researchers, who represent institutions and research centers from 18 countries around the world.
In addition to key theory and experimental approaches, the articles explore a broad range of topics related to translator and workplace characteristics including machine translation, creativity, ergonomic perspectives, and cognitive effort, and competence, training, and interpreting such as multimodal processing, neurocognitive optimization, process-oriented pedagogies, and conceptual change. The final two chapters map out future directions for cognition and translation studies, as well as areas in need of more research.

A state-of-the-art study, The Handbook of Translation and Cognition demonstrates the dynamic and fruitful work happening at the intersection of these burgeoning fields today.
