September 2009 – December 2009. Working with Martin Kay, Dept of Linguistics

My current research interest focuses on process-oriented translation, specifically the elaboration, formalization and empirical validation of cognitively plausible models for human translation processes, using keyboard logging and eye-tracking technologies, so-called User Activity Data (UAD). I am working on the design and implementation of a query language for UAD to correlate human activity patterns with properties of the source and target texts. The goal is to achieve a better understanding of the basic processing concepts that underlie and guide human translation behavior, and to prepare ground for advanced human interaction with machine-translation systems.
