Corpus-based methods for Comparative Translation and Interpreting Studies
Mapping differences and similarities with traditional and innovative tools
Comparative Translation and Interpreting Studies (CTIS1) encompasses all research processes resulting from the comparison of theories, products, and practices associated with the tasks performed by translators and interpreters during their work. A specific set of comparative methods and tools are derived from Corpus-based Translation and Interpreting Studies (CTIS2). In an attempt to conduct CTIS1 from a CTIS2 perspective, this article applies (modern diachronic) corpus-based ideas, such as priming theory and corpus tools, to build a comparative methodology and analysis with the European Comparable and Parallel Corpus (ECPC) archive. The article focuses on the notions of difference and similarity to better understand the field.
Keywords: Comparative Translation and Interpreting Studies (CTIS), Corpus-based Translation and Interpreting Studies (CTIS), Modern Diachronic Corpus-Assisted Discourse Studies (MD-CADS), ECPC, methodology
