ABSTRACT

Discussion of the expertise framework and its potential to tap into translation and interpreting, especially from an expert-performance approach. The major topics include: expertise as the result of deliberate practice; the non-transference of expertise across domains; the role of translation in translator’s expertise per se and in comparison to field specialist’s expertise; the implications of studies of expertise in writing and reading to studies of translation expertise; and the implication of the notion of interactional expertise to the study of translation expertise and interpreting expertise. Also, the seminar analyze the translation and related tasks (including reading, writing, and post-editing) as processes that involve automatisms and also require cognitive effort to solve problems.
