This course is designed to be a translation course complementary to the language curriculum. The objective of the course is to help students develop and improve their translation skills. It is expected that, by the end of the course, students will acquire the basic tools necessary to translate from the source to the target language. It is meant to be an introductory course, through which students will be generalist translators, rather than specialists. For this purpose, the course materials will cover a wide range of genres and styles. It should be noted, however, that the focus of the course is mostly practical translation, rather than literary translation of prose, fiction, novels, poems, and others.
