A particular strength is our translation and interpreting research, which is based in the internationally recognised Centre for Translation and Interpreting Studies in Scotland (CTISS). The Centre provides a focus for research into the socio-professional use of language in multilingual environments. Its aims include investigation of the nature of the process of translating/interpreting and the construction of social communication, dissemination of research and the promotion of awareness of issues relating to the profession and to the training of interpreters and translators.
The CTISS brings together staff and postgraduate research in our core areas of translation studies, interdisciplinary social communication studies and discourse linguistics. A belief that understanding of textual strategies (genres, discourses, texts) is central to the discourse processes involved in translating and interpreting is a unifying theme of much of the work done in CTISS.
In addition to core research in translating and interpreting processes, the Centre also carries out research on contrastive textology and social communication science.
