The course will focus on translation as a problem-solving process and examine a range of strategies for dealing with practical translation problems. The emphasis will be on the process and product of translation, though theoretical issues will be discussed where these are relevant. Each lesson will outline a set of related notions and problems and will lead to practical work and related translation tasks, though students will not be required to translate texts. Examples will be drawn from a variety of material, from literary works to technical and commercial texts.
(Note: attendance is essential. Instruction is carried out in English and Greek)
