THESIS: Translators can never rely entirely on even the highly complex and

well-informed habits they have built up over the years to take them through

every job reliably; in fact, one of the "habits" that professional translators must

develop is that of building into their "subliminal" functioning alarm bells that go off

whenever a familiar or unfamiliar problem area arises, calling the translator out of

the subliminal state that makes rapid translation possible, slowing the process down,

and initiating a careful analysis of the problem(s).
