Title: Initial report on user interface studies, cognitive and user modelling
Author: Carl, Michael; Hill, Robin
Abstract: This WP lays the empirical foundations for the development of the CASMACAT workbench. A series of experiments will establish basic facts about translator behaviour in computer-aided translation, focusing on the use of visualisation option and input modalities. Another series of studies will deal with individual di erences in translation, in particular translator types and translation styles. The initial report deals with translation types and styles, text types and reading model adapted for machine translated texts. It covers the rst periode of Tasks 1.3, 1.4, and 1.5. The deliverable is structured into three sections which bie y summarize the work and an appendix which contains more detailed information about the produced material and a number of papers. An experimental setup (see section 2.1) and a questionnaire (see section 1.1) was designed to obtain consistent data from various translators in di erent languages under similar conditions. Translation data was collected in several locations (section 2.2) and assembled into a TPR database, as described in section 1.2. Preliminary studies were conducted to investigate post- editing and translation styles (section 1.3). Translation data was also collected in the rst casmacat eld trial. The assessment is provided in Deliverable d6.1. Section 3 describes the rst Edinburgh Eyetracking experiment while the Appendix contains furter material.
