Table of contents
This collection of papers, (mostly) from the Symposium on Translation Processes at AILA96 is probably representative of the state of the art of introspection, and think-aloud protocols (TAPs) in particular, as a methodology in process-oriented translation research. Seven contributions report TAP or retrospection studies, several review contemporary methodology and research in general (Shlesinger, Fraser, House, Jääskeläinen and Tirkonnen-Condit); two are on quite different topics (de Groot, Tabakowska).
