3. Course contents *

This course is an introduction into translation of general texts from Spanish into Dutch. Active participation is required for the seminars, in which the assignments and translation that have been prepared at home will be discussed. The students will learn how to complete a translation assignment in a correct, critical and efficient manner, by paying attention to both product and process aspects. They will become familiar with the typical problems of translation from Spanish into Dutch, especially those related to target text formulation. During the seminars, the students will also learn how to translate without external sources and to carry out sight translation. Two important focal points of this course are (1) contrastive analysis and (2) improved knowledge of Spanish and Dutch (by increasing students’ vocabulary and knowledge of sentence structure, grammar and text structure in both languages).
