Students who wish to focus more on literary and/or cultural translation may choose to select one main text, in consultation with the supervisor. Students will be expected to translate into their A language.


On completion of the project, students will have developed considerably their translation skills, their understanding of issues involved in the translation process, and their awareness of relevant methodologies
