Products of what processes? Combining cognitive and socio-technical aspects of process-orientated translator education
This talk considers the feasibility of an integrated approach to incorporating methods oriented on internal (cognitive) and external (socio-technical) processes into translator education. After looking at ways in which such methods have been applied, researched and evaluated discretely, we consider opportunities for combining the two distinct but related aspects of process orientation in teaching and didactic research.
