RUS206 or RUS208
Aims/Description: This module addresses issues English speakers face in translating from Russian, and gives them tools to handle these issues. Working with Russian texts from varied genres, students look in-depth at conventions that translators need to be aware of and abide by; and investigate the use of machine translation, corpora and other translation tools. The module is intended for those thinking about translation as a career, as well as for those who may want to use their Russian professionally in another capacity and need to know how to assess and summarize texts quickly, accurately and fluently.
