Personal experience of Séverine's work Oct 31, 2011

I'm not arguing with people's issues raised above but I can mention that I attended Séverine's talk at the ITI conference in May this year:

‘Emotional Intelligence in the Translation/Interpreting Workplace’ – Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI) Conference (Birmingham, 2011)

in which we all went through the test on the spot. It was in fact very interesting and thought-provoking about the way different people go about the translation process.

I can confirm that Séverine is a bona fida researcher and lecturer in translation studies, and is not up to anything underhand.

No pop-up Oct 31, 2011

I loaded the doc from the link Samuel provided but encountered no pop-op window. I use AdBlock on Chrome.
I really do see no reason why I should fill in such a questionnaire. Waste of time.

Too damn long! Nov 1, 2011

If one is going to farm out questionnaires or surveys, it's (potentially) a death's knell if they are long and complicated. And, posting them in a forum like this potentially "invites" all sorts of dissuasory arguments.

Ok, maybe response is going to be a variable - and I imagine in this case it will be low: maybe that, in itself, will warrant a research article with results:-)

I'm wondering if the survey was well designed in the first place: detailed Qs to subjects who will - variably - decide not to complete for several reasons, some already mentioned. In fact, I had a look first at the replies in this forum, then at the survey, and my decision was not to bother: too many issues, too many questions, too much info and detail required.

Maybe the researcher needs to recosnsider the sample?
