This paper presents a selection of empirical studies of television interpreting in the Austrian
context. Following an introductory review of the unique features of TV interpreting and
the rationale for studying it, the main methodological options, ranging from observational
to experimental approaches, are briefly discussed. The paper then reports empirical
analyses, several of them conducted in the framework of recent MA theses completed at the
University of Vienna under the author’s supervision. These examples serve to demonstrate
the significant potential of research using corpora of authentic high-exposure interpreting
and highlight the great variety of issues to be investigated, which range from the
distinction between different target-language varieties to product-oriented analyses of
rhetorical devices and to experiments eliciting TV interpreting consumers’ preferences and
