SPAN 4600 - Introduction to Spanish/English Translation

This course will explore the basic principles of translation and interpretation, the theory, the methods, the challenges, the problems and the satisfaction involved in rendering both written texts and oral statements from Spanish into English and vice versa without losing the basic ideas, the intent, the stylistic level, and the linguistic register. The course emphasizes the translation of material intended for the general public; however, there will be some consideration of specialized material from fields such as business, literature, and medicine. Emphasis will be placed on translating from Spanish to English, with some consideration given to English-Spanish translation. Prerequisite(s): two upper division SPAN courses with a grade of C or better.
