Translation: Theory and Practice (641075)

Course description:

  1. Theory: A Review of translation theories. Presentation of main translation theories and of the relevant terminology. Analytical approach of the translation process.
  2. Practice: Translation of texts from various genres (written or oral discourse) from French to Greek, translation strategies, development of professional translation skills.

The course’s objective is the connection of theory and practice, taking into account that the elements that form a translation theory are derived from translation practice, while, at the same time, a firm theoretical background is necessary for a well-rounded translation practice. Another objective is to introduce students to fundamental translation theories and to connect them with the current translation skills and practices, which are strongly connected to labour market.
