SPAN 370 Seminar on Translation

The course's aim is to introduce students to theoretical issues and the practical applications of translation. We will combine theory and practice to examine the full complexity of translation as both an art and a science. Specifically, we will work with the particular features of the translation process from English to Spanish and Spanish to English through a semester-long translation practicum. Among the issues to be considered are equivalence, decoding and recoding and untranslatability. [H, W]
