This paper will outline how the theoretical and methodological framework of Functional Pragmatics can be applied to interpreting research. The aim is to show that mental dimensions of the interpreting process can be reconstructed from transcriptions of interpreted discourse.The scope of such an analysis will be discussed on the basis of Bührig & Rehbein (forthcoming). This analysis considers interpreting as a type of action that consists first and foremost in "reproducing" (sections 1 and 2). The HIAT transcription conventions and the syncWRITER-software as tools for the transcription and analysis of interpreted discourse will be presented in section 3 and applied to authentic data (section 4). In section 5, the explanatory value of the approach will be discussed in relation to phenomena found in the data presented.
