Abstract

This experimental study explores how a potential computer-assisted interpreting tool affects consecutive interpreters’ performance in accuracy and fluency and their cognitive process during interpreting. It consists of an experiment with ten participants and a follow-up interview with them. The results show that: (1) the tool has improved interpreters’ interpreting accuracy but its impact on fluency is mixed; (2) the tool especially benefits those who have better language proficiency and have had interpreting experiences; and (3) the use of the tool has increased interpreters’ cognitive load insomuch that novice interpreters who have relatively low language proficiency are adversely affected.
