Translation Greek-English II
The module seeks to further enhance the students’ ability to translate into English from Greek, i.e. from their mother tongue into the foreign language, by carrying out the appropriate lexical, stylistic, semantic and cultural shifts, transpositions and modulations. The module also seeks to familiarise students with the most common types of text they are to come across when working as translators. It covers a broad range of subjects and genres (literary texts, cartoons, journalistic articles, recipes, tourist guides, etc.) and discusses translation, language and terminology problems.
