In this practical course, students interested in specialised translation as a professional activity will have an opportunity to develop their initial competence in this field by working with selected texts from key areas of economics and technology. Texts translated will be from German into English and vice versa. The course aims to sensitise students to important textual and linguistic differences between economic and scientific/technical discourse in English and German. Participants will deepen their understanding of procedural aspects of the work of a specialised translator such as researching the source text and using translation resources effectively. They will also gain an initial insight into broader commercial aspects of the profession, including terminology management and quality control.
