Expert web searching skills for translators – a multiple-case study

Abstract This paper presents partial results of a multiple-case study of English to Polish translation students who enrolled in a three-semester undergraduate translation course in western Poland. The author analyses the students’ web searching skills before and after a 4-month intervention. The research question the author addresses is whether and how the increased expert searching skills developed by the students influence their search speed and accuracy. In a broader context, this paper constitutes a part of a research project that examines the development of information competence in undergraduate translation students.
