This course will introduce students to recent translation theory. Students will study and practice different approaches to translation. The bulk of the course will have a practical orientation and will provide lots of hands-on translation practice. This course will be taught in English and is open to all students interested in French to English translation who have taken the equivalent of at least three years of formal, university language instruction in French. The corpus of works to be translated will range broadly: literature, journalism, business, history, film, technical fields. This will be an excellent opportunity for a wide variety of students to practice and strengthen their French reading skills.
This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.
