Socio-Cognitive Translation Studies: Processes and Networks

Translators are constantly confronted with new cognitive, social and technological challenges. Accordingly, our research centres on translators in their current work settings, be they organisations, freelance translation networks or non-professional virtual contexts.

In particular, we study the changes that are currently affecting translation work contexts, especially those relating to the increasing heterogeneity of translation tasks and work processes, new forms of cooperation and the rapid technological change. A crucial aspect thereby is our critical reflection on the consequences of these changes with regard to the opportunities for action and decision processes of the people involved.
