The volume includes contributions on the cognitive processes underlying
translation and interpreting, which represent innovative research with a
methodological and empirical orientation. The methodological section offers
an assessment/validation of different time lag measures; discusses the

research; translation and meta-linguistic awareness; effect of language-pair
specific factors on interpreting quality. A special section is dedicated to

Dimitrova and her contribution to the development of process-oriented
research.
