Content
The Specialised Translation Workshop in International Affairs is an initiation to the translation of international affairs texts from German into French. The aim of the course is to teach a translation method based on pre-translation (documentation, terminology), translation and post-translation tasks. This methodology will be acquired through a series of translation exercises (with and without CAT-tools) which will receive group and/or individual correction. The texts to be translated will be selected from the International Affairs section of the general press or from specialized publications and will cover one or several themes in the field of international affairs.
Using machine translation software during a translation exercise or exam is forbidden. Such software may only be used as a starting point for a post-edition exercise given by the teacher.
