3. Course contents *

This course focuses on translation, translation technique, terminology use and revision: classroom, individual and/or group translations of specialised (e.g. technical, popular scientific, legal texts). Different topics and genres are covered, so that different terminological sources have to be consulted and different style registers have to be used. Furthermore, students are encouraged to justify translation choices and strategies and to research sources. Text correction and revision with self-assessment and peer assessment are also discussed.
