    What is translational creativity? How can we measure it? Do translators translate more creatively as their translation competence increases? These are the central issues addressed by this empirical study using psycholinguistic methods. The data at the base of the study are the target texts and translation processes of twelve students who took part in translation experiments each semester during their bachelor programme. These data were compared with those of ten professional translators who were given the same translation assignments as the student translators.
