Quality in Interpreting and Nonverbal Aspects

The QINV project runs along three strands of research on the perception of interpreting quality:
  1. Vertical study of quality criteria: this strand examines the impact of prosody-related components of individual criteria on users' impressions. It complements the "horizontal" study of criteria that characterised pioneering research on quality. – This strand follows in the steps of earlier vertical studies.
  2. Methodology for survey-based quality studies: This strand aims to advance questionnaire design and administration methods.
  3. Preparation of experimental material: This strand explores options of experimental treatment for certain features of spoken discourse which may have an impact on the perception of individual quality criteria.
These activities are ongoing. The results and the corresponding bibliographical references will be published on this website as soon as they are available.
