Interpreting is a complicated procedure of information processing relating to people’s logic and psychological process. Memory is the key link and the major obstacle affecting interpreting. Interpreting is an instant logic conversion activity between two languages, conveying the information in target language on a basis of accurate understanding in a short period of time, which requires interpreters to maintain and process information which highly depends on short-term memory. This paper endeavors to analyze the status and functions of short-term memory objectively through questionnaire sent to English majors about the opinions of the relationship between short-term memory and interpreting quality.
