Translation is a complex cognitive activity and – like any other human activity – is characterised by individuality and diversity. Do translators differ in the way they actually translate? Do they differ in the way they carry out translation-oriented research activities? What are these differences? And do they matter? Joanna will talk about research which looked into the translation process to discern different translation production styles and styles related to translation-oriented research. She will consider whether the increasingly technologised environment in which translations are now produced may have an effect on how we translate and research for translation and what are the implications of translating in the digital age on the natural behaviour of human translators.
