Specialist Translation (SMLM142)

30 credits

A key skill in becoming a more successful translator is the ability to specialise: when translators gain expertise in an area, they can translate texts from that area more quickly and more accurately. In this module you will learn about how specialist texts differ from more general texts, and what elements specialist texts have in common. You will develop your translation and research skills in five specialist areas (science, technology, business, social science and law), and in particular will learn how to use the tools and resources necessary to specialise in a particular field, preparing your for different eventualities in your future career.
