Eye-to-IT conference on translation processes, sentence processing, and the bilingual mental lexicon.
28-29 April, 2009, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark
The EU FP6 Eye-to-IT project (2006-2009) has brought together psycholinguists, neurolinguists, eye-tracking specialists, EEG specialists, translation scholars and developers of translation tools. Jointly, they have explored the possibility of developing a research application for studying translation processes intensively and, in parallel with this, to develop a prototype gaze-based support tool for translators. Now that the project is nearing its end, we invite researchers with an interest in applying eye-tracking, keystroke logging and EEG to the study of translation processes (and to language processes more generally) to discuss the state of the art in the field.
