Working with Translation: Theory and Practice
- Start date: 24 February 2020
- 4 hours per week for 4 weeks
From health to the justice system, from the voluntary sector to sport and the arts, we all increasingly live and work in contexts where people speak more than one language.
Established as a profession from the third millennium BCE, translation is one of the most fundamental of human activities, allowing us to interact with one another within and across cultures. We all encounter translation in our daily life, whether we speak many languages or just one.
Whether you regularly work with translators and interpreters in your job, find yourself occasionally acting as a translator or mediator, are considering translation as a possible route of professional development, or simply ponder over the ever-present interplay of languages and cultures around you, you will benefit from this course.
