CBS - Copenhagen Business School

Third International PhD-course in Translation Process Research (TPR)

CRITT - Center for Research and Innovation in Translation and Translation Technology

The Center for Research and Innovation in Translation and Translation Technology (CRITT) at CBS is offering the third international PhD course in Translation Process Research (TPR) from August 5 to 8, 2013. The course will focus on theoretical aspects of translation process research, on experimental research design and methodology, on data visualization and human translation modeling, and on qualitative and quantitative data analysis. There will also be an opportunity to get hands-on experience with recording eye-tracking sessions and to discuss issues arising in connection with user interaction with language technological tools, particularly the process of post-editing machine translation output. In addition, participants will have the chance to discuss their research with each other and the lecturers.

The course components will be taught by leading researchers in the respective fields. The mornings will be devoted to lectures and discussion, while the afternoon sessions will include participant presentations, consultation with the lecturers, and preparing, running and analysing a demonstration experiment using the methods taught in the morning sessions. The course will be taught in English.

Following the course, there will be an open workshop on Speech and Gaze in Translation (SGT Wowkshop) on August 9 and 10, 2013. Participants are encouraged to participate in the workshop and invited to contribute an abstract for a paper presentation at the workshop.
