TRANSLATION AND INTERPRETATION
Foreign Language General 375
This general interest course is for students in the foreign language program, regardless of specific language studied, interested in translation or interpretation as a future career. It will examine ethical issues that arise in translation and interpretation practice; linguistic and cultural aspects of language translation and interpretation; the difference between translation and interpretation; as well as possible career paths for translators and interpreters. Though it is a general-interest translation/interpretation course taught in English, students will be introduced to issues and techniques in their selected language field through guest speakers, and will have the opportunity to study and present case studies related to their particular language pairs.
