This practical course offers students interested in translation as a professional activity an opportunity to develop their translation skills by working on a variety of texts from journalistic and media-related sources. Working in both directions between German and English, students will practise written and at-sight translation (including adaptation of culturally-specific texts) and will be sensitised to important textual and linguistic differences between journalistic styles in English and German that will need to considered by translators in this field. Throughout the semester, students will develop a range of translation strategies they could readily transfer to texts translated in journalistic/media-related environments. There will also be important input on professional aspects of media-related translation.
