Abstract
Interpretation has been examined from various perspectives with fruitful results. But the study of interpretation from a schematic approach, despite its bright prospect, is relatively rare. Interpretation is a knowledge-based activity, and schemata is an efficient representation form of knowledge. In this paper, five types of schema in the interpreting process, namely language schema, topic schema, text schema, cultural schema and strategy schema are identified as crucial for the interpreter to bring about successful communication. A schema model for interpreting process is put forward to illustrate how these types of schema work together towards successful interpretation. From the perspective of mental efforts in interpretation, the roles of these schemata in interpretation, and their efficient deployment to achieve coordinated distribution of mental efforts are examined, which further revealing the importance of schemata in interpretation.
