This paper attempts to combine interpreting studies with working memory research and propose a theoretical framework for the process model of simultaneous interpreting first, the embedded model of working memory by cowan is introduced as the most promising model to account for various. Working (online) memory (wm), in particular, often include a plea for research based on complex cognitive tasks its modifiers), and on the role of presentation rate in this process at the point where the interpreter crucial to the highly developed semantic memory required in interpreting le ny (1978) suggests that the. This paper explains the implications of memory on the interpretation process it provides the theoretical framework of consecutive and simultaneous interpretation as well as six memory models presented in cognitive psychology it gives an overview of five different memory models that attempt to explain the way in which the. For this purpose, four working memory tasks and one simultaneous interpreting task were administered to thirty spanish-speaking professional english interpreters results showed that simultaneous interpreting ability might be supported by the working memory´s capacity to store or process information. An effort model of simultaneous interpretation ▫ “simultaneous interpretation can be modeled as a process consisting of the three efforts describe below: ▫ the listening and analysis effort l ▫ the short term memory effort m ▫ the speech production effort p ▫ coordination effort c which is required to coordinate the. Remaining two lines are less studied and call for further systematic research as for the theoretical models, they attempt to provide a comprehensive picture of how wm operates in conjunction with other processes in the service of interpreting these models still await more empirical evidence interpreter advantage in wm.

Consequences of inadequate short-term memory memory plays a role at every stage of the interpreting process proper functioning of short-term memory involves: efﬁcient processing of sounds into recognized words and then into chunks of information, calling upon long-term memory as required to ﬁll in. There are some special methods to train memory which are generally accepted however, few curriculum developers talk about memory training for interpreter trainees in academic institutions specific functions of working memory in the interpreting process are to (i) retain source language, (ii) compute the meaning ( ie to.
The memory process memory is the processes that is used to acquire, retain, and later retrieve information the memory process involves three domains: encoding, storage, and retrieval encoding – processing incoming information so it can be entered into memory storage – maintaining information in memory for a period. Objectives and hypotheses our research team has spent the last few years studying the cognitive processes involved in simultaneous interpreting the results of this research have shown that professional interpreters develop specific ways of using their working memory, due to their work in simultaneous interpreting this. Working memory is a theoretical framework that refers to structures and processes used for temporarily storing and manipulating information as such, working memory might also be referred to as working attention working memory and attention together play a major role in the processes of thinking short-term memory in.
From the above analysis, it can be concluded that recording stage in interpreting process must be fulfilled with the combination of effective mental memorization and necessary notes d the encoding procedure this procedure includes the activation of the target language (tl) elements found in the long-term memory,. It is generally agreed that language interpreting is cognitively demanding how- ever, to date there is little evidence to indicate how working memory is involved in the task, perhaps due to methodological the use of on-line measures allowed us to take a ne-grained approach to the investigation of interpretation processes. The paper presents a theoretical overview of the concept of working memory and its application in interpreting research three representative models of working memory, as developed in cognitive psychology, are discussed and compared three selected models of the interpreting process illustrate the theoretical. More specifically, the findings support those accounts of simultaneous interpreting which emphasize attentional control as an important component of the simultaneous interpreting process keywords: simultaneous interpreting, central executive, attentional control, working memory published online: 22.
Rehearsal is a verbal process regardless of whether the list of items is presented acoustically (someone reads them out), or visually (on a sheet of paper) the principle encoding system in long-term memory (ltm) appears to be semantic coding (by meaning) however, information in ltm can also be coded both visually. For us to recall events, facts or processes, we have to commit them to memory the process of forming a memory involves encoding, storing, retaining and subsequently recalling information and past experiences cognitive psychologist margaret w matlin has described memory as the “process of retaining. Memory in interpreting generally involves three processes: recognition, retention and retrieval of information (bao gang, 1998: 157) in recognition process, the interpreter listens to the source language, percepts and understands the meaning, retention refers to the storage of the source language. Similarly tailor their interpretation processes to the knowledge that is shared with the cur- rent speaker if one speaker knows the name of a novel toy, but a second speaker does not, addressees expect knowledgeable, but not unknowledgeable speakers to use the toy's name (metzing & brennan, 2003 brown-schmidt,.

Effect of language proficiency and degree of formal training in simultaneous interpreting on working memory and interpreting performance: evidence from mandarin–english speakers show all in danks, h j, shreve, g m, fountain, s b, mcbeath, m k (eds), cognitive processes in translation and interpreting ( pp. The complexity of simultaneous interpreting need not be outlined further (see for example cowan 2000 frauenfelder & schriefers 1997 moser-mercer 2000 pöchhacker 2004) the highly legitimate hypothesis that memory and attention skills play a major role in the process of interpreting has been. Meaning, memory structure, and mental processes meyer de, schvaneveldt rw although people experience little difficulty in recognizing printed words and comprehending sentences, they cannot do it instantaneously experimental psychologists have recently measured the speed of these mental processes by applying.
