Translation 1: Applications of Theory (12 points)


Leader: Jeff Browitt

Not offered in 2003.

Synopsis: The unit is the first in a series of three units offered over three semesters and which aim to develop in students the ability to translate texts of increasing levels of complexity and expertise in a variety of textual genres. The unit combines a generic, classroom-based component, in which theoretical issues from the parallel core unit, TRN4030 Introduction to Translation Studies, are discussed, and web-based translation assignments tailored to individual target languages, involving the practical application of theoretical insights. Translation will be bi-directional - to and from English.

Assessment: Weekly assignments (equivalent 5,000 words): 50% + Descriptive essay (1,000 words): 10% + Mid-semester test (1 hour): 15% + Final exam (2 hours): 25%

Contact Hours: 4 hours (2 hour lecture and 2 hour tutorial) per week
