Through cohesive yet wide-ranging contributions focused on the rapidly growing area of eye tracking in Translation Studies, this volume provides readers with an insightful cross-section of the state of the art in this multidisciplinary field. Showcasing the great potential and challenges of this still nascent paradigm, it offers novel, practical methods and approaches to conduct ambitious, experimental studies. Through a variety of methodologically-oriented chapters and case studies, categorised into three key areas – ‘Method’, ‘Process’ and ‘Product’ –, the book presents some of the most up-to-date eye-tracking methods and results in Translation Studies, including experiment design, statistical and analytical approaches, the translation process, audience and reader response, and audiovisual translation. The reproducible research protocols, re-iterative approaches and ambitious triangulations of data included in this volume seek to inspire new research using eye tracking in Translation Studies by providing the necessary methodological support and ideas for new avenues of inquiry.

Table of Contents
“This volume presents a kaleidoscope of meticulous efforts applying eye tracking in translation studies. By presenting some of the latest statistical models and novel fields to explore, this volume accommodates to the research aspiration of advancing translation studies to a more interdisciplinary arena.”
“The book makes a very significant contribution to TS as it provides readers with a carefully planned selection of interdisciplinary eye tracking studies. The authors discuss not only the applicability of eye tracking, but also some methodological issues related to its use. The results of the studies presented in the book may contribute not only to TPR, but also to reception studies, as well as to state-of-the-art statistical approaches adopted to study translators’ behaviour and translation user experience.”
