Introduction to Translating

Module code: TS1002

In this module we will discuss the key issues and concepts involved in translation, as well as reflect on the practice of translation itself. You will compile a learning log and work in groups on translation-related exercises to help you contemplate on key issues and concepts as well as develop your team-working and presentation skills. You will be taught through weekly seminars whist compiling a learning log, and will also be encouraged to learn independently and autonomously through directed reading and practice.
