Abstract: Understanding translation competence is crucial not only for translator and interpreter training institutions, but also for increasingly multilingually-dependent governmental institutions and companies. To illustrate how experiments in translation can contribute to understanding translation competence, we focus on one aspect directly related to new technological developments in the workplace: instrumental competence. We present an approach to triangulating empirical data from translation processes and products that could contribute important insights into all levels of translation competence, from novice to seasoned professional.
