Translation Studies and Eye-Tracking Analysis


Edited By Sambor Grucza, Monika Pluzycka and Justyna Alnajjar

For some time already, a discourse within the field of Translation Studies has increasingly focused on the translator, his/her translation properties and mental processes resulting from their application. Recent years and advances in technology have opened up many possibilities of gaining a deeper insight into these processes. This publication presents the theoretical foundations, the results of scientific experiments, and a broad range of questions to be asked and answered by eye-tracking supported translation studies. The texts have been arranged into two thematic parts. The first part consists of texts dedicated to the theoretical foundations of Translation Studies-oriented eye-tracking research. The second part includes texts discussing the results of the experiments that were carried out.

The notions mentioned here will be instrumentally used as a vital frame of reference which will allow for compiling a general, necessarily selective and, I hope, valid characterisation of the theory of translation in Poland. I do not use the term ‘Polish theory of translation’ deliberately, since in my view of the mentioned reality along with its proper interpretation (and this is not only my opinion), such a phase in the development of the discipline discussed here has not been reached yet, which I will try to point out; this may, however, actually occur by the way of the necessary integration of the discipline with the indispensable participation of the recently reactivated Polish Association of Applied Linguistics. Therefore, I have great expectations of it, and, as one may judge by the number of the participants of this general meeting, I am not alone in this belief. Nevertheless, before I proceed with providing a more detailed and, due to apparent constraints, also selective description of the problems relating to, inter alia, the integration degree of the theory of translation as a discipline as well as the reasons for such a state, let me first discuss certain...
