Process Oriented Translator Training

Models/Definitions of Process-oriented Translator Training

Process-oriented translator training is concerned with:
  1. “Helping students become more cognizant of how they translate through (primarily) retrospective self-reflection on the problems they encounter;
  2. Getting students to successfully apply declarative and procedural knowledge in a targeted manner based on the task at hand” (Angelone, 2013, p. 255); and
  3. [Enhancing students’] “metacognition, or strategic, conscious, and volitional control over complex cognitive tasks” (Shreve 2009, cited in Angelone, 2013, p. 255.)
