Ease of use of translation process research methods
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to present an overview of the basic instruments for data elicitation used in empirical investigation of translation processes, focusing on the ease of their use in the classroom setting. Although the vast array of methods is theoretically available to the researcher (e.g. verbal report data, key-logging, video and screen recording, eye-tracking, neuro-imaging techniques, speech recognition), some of the tools are easier to use in the classroom than others due to locale constraints. The theoretical discussion is illustrated with examples from the research project carried out by the author.
