Translation Project (TRNS6905)


A translator's work involves many tasks beyond linguistic translation: negotiating with clients, defining the translation's scope, research domain-specific knowledge and terminology, project management, and collaborating with texters, web-designers and proof-readers. This unit sees a translation project (simulated or real) through from start to finish - from project acquisition to publication. Translation projects will differ each year, will be conducted on a group basis, and may be from English into LOTE or vice versa.
