David Orrego-Carmona

Lecturer in Translation Studies, Aston University

My areas of expertise include audiovisual translation and translation technologies. In particular, my research analyses how translation technologies empower users and how the democratization of technology allows these users to become non-professional translators. I explore the production and reception conditions of professional and non-professional subtitles and how non-professional subtitling impacts on professional translation and translator training.
Other interests include translation process research and the cognitive exploration of translation production and reception, mainly using eye-tracking technologies.
