TRANSLATION FROM FINNISH INTO ENGLISH

A useful way to complete your old syllabus requirements with this Finnish to English translation linguistics option course.

This is a course for main and subsidiary subject English philology students offering guidance and practice in translating from Finnish into English. The aim is to develop fully idiomatic written English expression across a range of written styles and media through detailed consideration of lexical, grammatical and rhetorical variation according to cultural settings and specific contexts of translation. Reading in the area of translation studies may be assigned at various points in the course.

Students will be expected to prepare translation drafts for each meeting. The drafts will form the basis for in-class revision, work in pairs and small groups making use of software track change tools, traditional reference material, language corpus program(s) and internet searches. Assessment will be based in equal measure on work submitted, active participation in the classwork (usual department attendance rules apply) and a final in-class examination. The assignments will typically involve translating texts of c.200-250 words.

Work to be uploaded by Friday noon in preparation for the Monday class. Save work as .docx or .doc (i.e. not .pdf or .odt or .rtf) and remember to put your name in the document.

This is a 4 sp course.
