Description

This course introduces students to basic procedures and strategies of translation, as well as covering several grammar points that present particular difficulties in translating Spanish to English. Students will complete five partial translations of texts that deal with social media technologies and feature the grammar points covered in lectures. These partial translations will be graded on the accuracy of the grammar and vocabulary. Students will choose five of these texts for full translations, which will be graded on their level of expression. Other graded work includes a glossary of tech terms students will compile throughout the term, commentaries on five of their classmates' partial translations and five on full translations, as well as two exams covering translation theory and the application to brief translations.

This course counts as elective credit toward the Spanish minor.
