Abstract

Despite the importance of online information seeking behaviours being recognised by researchers (Enriquez Raido 2011, 2014, Gough 2015, Hvelplund 2017, 2019), there are only a handful of studies focusing on them. This study therefore sets out to investigate how professional translators conduct their primary action (i.e. query behaviour) and secondary action (i.e. browsing and clicking behaviour) in navigating the web. Unlike previous studies, it adopts a qualitative eye tracking methodology, i.e. eye tracking stimulated think-aloud with ten professional translators. A model of translators’ primary and secondary actions is presented as well as how these actions interact with one another as a result.
