Dual N-Back Training for Simultaneous Interpretation
In a collaboration with Prof. Dr. Aymil DOĞAN (Hacettepe University), this project investigates applications of dual n-back training to the field of interpretation and translation.
In simultaneous interpretation, the interpreter often – but not always – works in a soundproofed booth. The speaker in the meeting room speaks into a microphone, the interpreter receives the sound through a headset and renders the message into a microphone almost simultaneously. The delegate in the meeting room selects the relevant channel to hear the interpretation in the language of his/her choice.
Working memory training and expanding working memory capacity is expected to improve interpreting performance, and this collaboration investigates this hypothesis.
