The nature of text production: Similarities and differences between writing and translation

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


Writing Research and Translation Studies are not only neighbouring disciplines, but also have conflating research interests. Correspondences between the two can be found in five aspects: the ontological nature of the object of study, cognitive factors, the situational factors, the disciplinary nature of the two fields, and the paradigmatic turns they have gone through. This article discusses the similarities and differences and proposes a strengthening of the cooperation between the fields on the basis of an overarching category of text production. Areas of current and apparent fruitful cooperation in research projects and education are described. The article promotes the idea of a more comprehensive understanding of the nature of text production through systematic cooperation of both disciplines.
