Translation of cognitive representations into written language is one of the most important processes in writing. This volume provides a long-awaited updated overview of the field.

The contributors discuss each of the commonly used research methods for studying translation; theorize about the nature of the cognitive and language representations and cognitive/linguistic transformation mechanisms involved in translation during writing; and make the case that translation is a higher-order executive function that is fundamental to the writing process.

The book also reviews the application of research to practice -- that is, the translation of the research findings in education and the work-world for individuals who interact with others using written language to communicate ideas.

This volume provides a rich resource for student, theorists, and empirical researchers in cognitive psychology, linguistics, and education; and teachers and clinicians who can use the research in their work.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Panoramic in scope, theoretically dense, and finely detailed, this book is must reading for every writing researcher. It is a state-of-the-art resource that will support for many years to come professionals interested in advancing the knowledge of writing processes and improving instructional practices at all levels." - Paul M. Rogers, Ph.D., George Mason University, USA

"This book represents a major leap forward in our understanding of the Translation processes involved in writing. The international and interdisciplinary set of authors present a critical outlook on research about translation that encompasses recent advances in both theory and methods. This allows the reader to gain a detailed and very up to date appreciation of the importance of translation to the development of writing." - Vince Connelly, Ph.D., Oxford Brookes University, UK

"This fascinating new book brings together disparate lines of research on translation processes in writing to create new insights. Translation -- the empty box in the original Hayes and Flower model of writing -- is where cognitive representations and language merge to create text and, thus, is central to understanding writing. This book should be required reading for every serious student of writing." - Charles MacArthur, Ph.D., University of Delaware, USA
