Even though learning styles are not a new research topic, little attention has been paid so far to their potential significance for the training of translators and interpreters. Following a brief review of the literature, the authors present the results of an investigation into learning style preferences of translator and interpreter students by means of the Kolb Learning Style Inventory. Their hypotheses that (a) translator and interpreter students differ in their learning style preferences and (b) interpreter students and professional interpreters show similar learning styles could be confirmed.
