Advanced Translation Skills (SML3031)

15 credits

In this module you will approach translation as a professional activity, applying the knowledge you have gained in the core language modules. You will learn how elements of translation theory can improve translation practice, so that you will be able to research translation tasks efficiently, and reflect on your own practice. Underpinning all of this is the core view that translation is a creative decision-making process that aims to communicate not words, but ideas and concepts across cultural borders.
