Investigating the Perception of Stylized Text in the Process of Professional Translation Using Eye-tracking
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the perception of a stylized text by professional interpreters when performing sight translation. Based on the results of the preliminary experiment, the methodology of this experimental study was refined by using new factors which were considered when developing the stimulus material and setting a new task for the participants of the experiment. The parametric data of the stimulus material viewing pattern obtained from the eye- tracker were analyzed using statistical analysis. The results of the experiment confirmed that the factors of contrast, stylization and typography had a statistical significance on the interpreters' perception of the text. The most and least effective combinations of the mentioned factors were also identified regarding the interpreters' text perception. The results of this experimental study can be used to design an application to improve the quality of interpreter training.
