TRNS7000 - Translation Studies A

Semester 1, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Dr Toni Borowsky


This unit of study introduces students to research in translation studies, including issues concerning ethics, professional practice and technology. It will offer students the chance to think about their own practice of translating in relation to these issues. Through a discussion of examples, the unit introduces a linguistic model for comparing written source and target texts at different levels of analysis. Participants should know at least one language other than English. The unit does not provide practical training in translation.
