Translation Theory and Practice
This course investigates the history of translation, focussing on the contrasts between the Anglo-American, European and Asian traditions. It explores the various assumptions underlying the notion of “good translation” and the potential conflict between a faithful rendition of verbal content and stylistic integrity. A section of the course will be devoted to ethical considerations in translation practice, including cultural awareness and client confidentiality.
