He is President of China Association for Translation, Interpreting and Cognition (CATIC), Editor-in-chief of Translation Research and Teaching, Vice President of China Rhetoric Association (CRA),Vice President of China Association of Ecological Translation and Cognitive Translation (CAETCT). He has had 10 research programs, published over 100 papers, 50 textbooks and monographs.
On the basis of the theory of Interpreting Cognitive Psychology?this study puts forward to the method of TD eye-tracking experiments in SI and basically constructs the paradigm of eye-tracking TD research in interpreting. The researchers have done the experiments to their 81 undergraduate interpreters of non-English majors for their eye-tracking trajectories in SI. The analyses conducted on the big data through the method of eye-tracking tests to the testees, comparison and SPSS, show that 1) the TD occupying rate of their eye-tracking trajectories is higher than that of their TD offset track, and further, the higher the rate of their TD occupying, the higher their average scores will be, vice versa; 2) the lower the rate of their regression in terms of their eye-tracking trajectories is, the higher their scores will be; otherwise, the higher the rate of their regression is, the lower their scores will be. The coping strategies are 1) TD occupying strategies: eye-tracking trajectories should close to TD; 2) zero regression strategies: eye-tracking trajectories should move forward, not backward; 3) cognitive strategies: positively cognize the contents of TD, activate the information of LTM, develop the effects of WM and rapidly give accurate equivalences of SL information.
