This blog showcases the final projects written by students for the course “SPAN401: Advanced Translation: Spanish-English” at the University of British Columbia, in Spring 2010.

For their final project, students were asked to choose a text (of around 1000 words) whose translation would be of public interest or use.

Some students sought and undertook undertook commissions for entities such as NGOs or public companies and corporations. Others translated Wikipedia articles. And still others chose news articles or similar that might provide a perspective from the Spanish-speaking world of interest to English-speaking readers.

Examples of these latter final projects can be found here on this blog.
