(EN) (AR) (FR) (JA) (RU) (PDF) - Preventing suicide: A global imperative | | Glossarissimo! |

"Every 40 seconds a person dies by suicide somewhere in the world. “Preventing suicide: a global imperative” is the first WHO report of its kind. It aims to increase awareness of the public health significance of suicide and suicide attempts, to make suicide prevention a higher priority on the global public health agenda, and to encourage and support countries to develop or strengthen comprehensive suicide prevention strategies in a multisectoral public health approach.

The report provides a global knowledge base on suicide and suicide attempts as well as actionable steps for countries based on their current resources and context to move forward in suicide prevention."

(TOOL) - Cognitive & Physical Ergonomics of Translation: Online Survey | | Glossarissimo! |

Cognitive and Physical Ergonomics of Translation (ErgoTrans)

The interdisciplinary research project Cognitive and Physical Ergonomics of Translation, funded by SNF, is a follow-up project of Capturing Translation Processes. The recursive mixed-methods design combines perspectives from

  • translation studies
  • occupational health
  • usability testing
  • language technology

The large corpus of the precursor study is the source of indications of ergonomic issues. Hypotheses about these are tested and refined with on-site ergonomic assessments and recordings of three groups of professional translators with different work profiles as well as with experiments in the usability lab. The results are expected to have implications for

  • theoretical models of extended cognition
  • theoretical models for situated activity
  • workplace practice
  • education and continuing education of professional translators
  • further developments at human computer interface
