Example text

Also, given that translated texts are distinctive communicative events, shaped by their own goals, pressures and contexts of production, descriptive scholars were encouraged to focus on the interplay of three elements: readership expectations, theoretical pronouncements and professional practice. These can be studied by complementing textual analyses with the investigation of extralinguistic sources of data such as historical information, book reviews, interviews of authors and translators, trends revealed by the output of publishing companies and decisions taken by funding bodies.

This potentially rich dividend from the study of special types of language use like translation and interpretation will depend on the techniques that can be developed for extracting robust findings from corpora produced in natural 36 Corpus-Based Translation Studies or ‘ecological’ conditions, bypassing the noise in experimental studies from participants’ (mis-)interpreting the researcher’s instructions, or deviating from their usual task norms and behaviour, in ways that may be undetectable. Simultaneous interpreting (SI) data promise to be particularly rich, on condition of finding reliable methods to fi x, display and interpret them.

Text features are quantitatively logged and compared as in CL, but CTS also ventures to treat certain features, like lexical use patterns (proportion of lexical to grammatical words, high- to low-frequency words, word repetition, type-token ratios) as indicators of such putative universals of translation (or at least of translated text) as simplification or explicitation. Another mainstream research topic in CTS is the impact on translation of cultural, ideological, political and gender pressures and norms, or conversely, and more ambitiously, the effect of translation in these dimensions of intercultural communication.
