In this practical course, students interested in specialised translation as a professional activity will have an opportunity to develop their initial translatorial competence in this field by working on texts from key areas of economics and technology. The course aims to sensitise students to linguistic and textual differences between scientific and economic discourse in English and German and will also provide an initial insight into important procedural aspects of specialised translation such as how to research the source text, employing translation tools to assist the translation process, and using databases to manage terminology and assure quality in translation. Maximal 15 Teilnehmer.
