Dr Chen-En Ho


Dr. Chen-En Ho is dedicated to cognitive studies of translation and interpreting, with a primary focus on investigating — with an eye tracker — the cognitive process of sight translation and influence of training and interpreting experience on interpreting quality.

Traditional cognitive analysis of T&I activities has been done by making inferences based on the interpreting outcome. With an eye tracker, moment-to-moment behaviours and strategies adopted by interpreters and translators can be revealed, which would enlighten training and skill development.
