Description

This is a language specific translation course whose aim is to provide students with a solid understanding of the main issues involved in Translation Studies. This course will have both theoretical and practical components, with an emphasis on the connections between translation theory and practice. It will introduce students to the main grammatical and translation-related concepts and strategies necessary to achieve equivalence effects between source and target language. This will be achieved by concentrating on those areas in the relationship between English and Spanish which are characterized by non-equivalence.
