TRANSLATION VS INTERPRETING IN THE PERSPECTIVE OF NEUROLINGUISTICS

Rochmat Susanto, Taufiq Jati Murtaya

Abstract


The following article aims 1) to explain the process of translating and interpreting in the perspective of neurolinguistics (explaining the process underlying the complexity which occur in human brain when translating and interpreting are performed) and 2) to compare or to find out the similarities and differences between translating and interpreting based on the point of view. The process of translation and interpreting are mostly different in terms of neurolinguistics perspective. Translation involves graphic channel (ST) which is processed through the eyes while interpreting involves phonic channel (SE) which is processed through the ears. However both meaning contained in ST and SE are transmitted to wernicke area where the act of re-expressing meaning through choosing appropriate lexicon into TT or TE occurred. Afterward brocca area activates the upper motor nerve to move translator‘s hand to re-express the meaning into TT while in interpreting, it activates the lower motor nerve to move interpreter‘s mouth and other related speech organs to re-express the meaning into TE.
