Gert De SutterGert De Sutter is associate professor of Dutch and translation studies at the Department of Translation, Interpreting and Communication of Ghent University, Belgium, where he teaches several undergraduate and graduate courses on (theoretical) translation studies, translation revision, Dutch sociolinguistics and advanced statistical methods in the language sciences. His research can be broadly characterised as empirical (corpus-based) research of linguistic variation in translated and non-translated texts. The overall aim of his research is to get a better insight into the complex interaction of social norms and bilingual cognition in translators, thereby drawing on insights from a.o. cognitive linguistics, psycholinguistics and sociolinguistics.
