Commercial Translation (Spanish to English)

This course will examine a range of topics that concern commercial transactions and correspondence, including business plans, insurance, banking, employment, investments, and taxes. The perspective of both a private individual and a business entity will be represented. Attention will be given to what is necessary to draft text clearly in English, such as correct punctuation, sentence composition, and word choices that avoid ambiguity. A glossary of terms will be supplied, and methods for developing and using it will be discussed. Other topics and activities may be considered as proposed by the course participants.
