About our experiments:

  • Participants

We carry out experiments with interpreters, translators, untrained bilinguals as well as untrained monolinguals. Please carefully read the description to see if you fit the profile – participants who do not fulfill all selection criteria will have to be excluded from the experiment and will not be remunerated.

  • Remuneration

While participation in our experiments is entirely voluntary and not remunerated, there is a (computer-generated) prize draw for each experiment. Cash prizes range from CHF 50 to CHF 250 depending on the length of the experimental session and will be paid out at the end of each experiment.

  • Consent

All participants in our experiments participate out of their own free will. If you choose to participate in an experiment, you will be asked to sign an informed consent form with a detailed description of your rights.
