With the accelerating emergence of global markets, communication among people speaking several different languages becomes crucial. Highly developed cognitive skills in two languages are required to achieve the quality of translation and interpretation necessary at all levels of business, government, and academia. Tightly edited and authoritative, Cognitive Processes in Translation and Interpreting applies some of the concepts and methods of cognitive science to the practical world of translation and focuses on the relationship between translation theory, translation research, and translation practice. The combined expertise of the contributing authors provides the reader with an interdisciplinary approach and makes the book ideal for the growing audience of translation scholars, as well as scholars, researchers, and advanced students in psychology, linguistics, and related fields.
