Spanish 401: Translation

Spanish 401 is an intensely practical introduction to the art and skill of translation both from Spanish to English and English to Spanish. Through a variety of activities from different professional specializations (Business, Journalism, Public Relations, and Literary and Cultural Studies), students will work through translation theories and techniques, grammatical and structural overlaps (or divergences) between Spanish and English, and grapple with questions of fidelity and fluidity when interpreting voice, culture, and text. This course also provides a brief introduction to simultaneous interpretation as it is done in the professional settings studied. Ultimately, students will improve writing skills and fluency in Spanish and overall understanding of the translation process and all of its intricacies. Participants must be highly proficient in both Spanish and English.
