This book explores how interpreters can get "in the zone" and how the conscious and unconscious function in interpretation. In addition, the book covers how the conscious and unconscious affect one's interactions with others and can either advance or inhibit one's professional growth. The purpose of Hoza’s research is to try to understand the thinking processes of a variety of interpreters when they engage in interpretation, interact with participants, and make professional and ethical decisions.

Successful interpretation is seamless, an effortless and efficient translation of meaning from one mode of communication to another. Yet the process of interpretation is actually quite complex and relies upon myriad components ranging from preparation to experience to honed judgment. Interpreting in the zone, instinctively and confidently, is an energizing, encompassing experience that results in great satisfaction and top performance—but what does it take to get there?

       Jack Hoza’s newest research examines the components that enable interpreters to perform successfully, looking at literature in interpretation, cognitive science, education, psychology, and neuroscience, as well as reviewing the results of two qualitative studies he conducted. He seeks to uncover what it means to interpret in the zone by understanding exactly how the brain works in interpretation scenarios. He explores a range of dichotomies that influence interpretation outcomes, such as:
  • Intuition vs. rational thought
  • Left brain vs. right brain
  • Explicit vs. implicit learning
  • Novice vs. master
  • Spoken vs. signed languages
  • Emotion vs. reasoning
       Cognitive processes such as perception, short-term memory, and reflexivity are strong factors in driving successful interpretation and are explored along with habits, behaviors, and learned strategies that can help or hinder interpretation skills. Hoza also considers the importance of professional development and collaboration with other practitioners in order to continually hone expertise.

       Interpreting in the Zone shows that cognitive research can help us better understand the intricacies of the interpreting process and has implications for how to approach the interpreting task. This resource will be of value to both the interpreter-in-training as well as the seasoned practitioner.


This impressive volume contains research and topics that are quite accessible to educators, interpreters, and students alike. Hoza does an exceptional job of integrating cognitive science, psychology, and his newest research. He delves into the minds of practitioners for a deeper understanding of managing and self-monitoring the cognitive process. Interpreting in the Zone is encompassing but not overwhelming all the pieces in this outstanding volume inspire us to improve our practice.--Christine Monikowski, Rochester Institute of Technology"
