Translation in Science & Technology
This course will address a variety of approaches to the translation of science and technology in the broadest sense, from academic papers to everyday product manuals and safety guidebooks produced for the lay reader. Students will gain experience translating technical documents in specialized areas. They will engage in the translation of scientific texts from fields such as pharmacology, biotechnology, environmental science, computer science, construction, machinery, and transportation. While completing practice translations of a variety of texts, the student will also develop research skills and build terminology sets in the subject areas covered throughout the course.
