This chapter begins with the application of communication theories, including Relevance Theory, to the process of translation before moving on to a consideration of translation process research, which has developed tools such as think-aloud protocols, keyboard logging and eye tracking to develop theories about the cognitive dimension of the translation process. Next we examine theories relating to interpreting where process research has a longer history than in any other area of translation. From there we move to new areas of translation where we investigate theories about the processes of software and games localization. Finally, we review the theories which have emanated from the rapidly expanding domain of audiovisual translation.
