Table of contents

The volume contains seven articles based on conference papers presented in the Second Brazilian International Translators’ Forum “Translating the millennium: Corpora, cognition, and culture”. They deal with process-oriented translation research and combine different methods and vantage points. The unifying [ p. 162 ]theme is triangulation: the application of several methods of data collection and analysis to arrive at more reliable findings about translation processes.
