FRENGT01 - Advanced Translation
The module focuses on the specific skill of translating French literary texts into English. It aims to develop skills both in critical reading and in interpretation, and an advanced understanding of the translation process. Teaching takes the form of practical translation and of written commentary on the problems of translation encountered. Whilst the emphasis is on the practical, students will also be acquiring a basic understanding of theories of translation as well as the technical vocabulary appropriate to the area. To this end, students will be required to purchase the Hervey and Higgins text listed below.
Places on this module
are limited and acceptance is not automatic. Students interested in
registering for it will need to attend a short interview with the module
tutor during Registration Week (time and place to be notified).
Preparatory Reading and Set Texts:
- Sandor Hervey and Ian Higgins, Thinking French Translation (2nd edition), Routledge, 2002
