The course will help the learners acquire an adequate understanding of different approaches to translation that not only preserve the meaning of the source, but also conform to context and relevant conventions. Students will be guided to develop advanced skills in tackling textual complexity at lexical, grammatical and conceptual levels for various text types and negotiating differences in cross-cultural thought forms through translation practice. Practice covers topics related to different types of businesses, industries and professions including, but not limited to, health, finance, legal proceedings, media, public institutions, academic publications, literature and science. The course also provides students with opportunities to participate in group work and utilise computer-based translation technology.
