Short Description:

The students will be introduced and will become familiar with the methodology and the practice of translating scientific and technical texts based on international principles and standards. The texts are derived from a wide range of scientific and technical fields. The course emphasizes on finding and using the appropriate terminology, while developing the translation skills of the students so that they will reproduce the meaning of the original texts without mistakes.

Objectives - Learning Outcomes:

During this course, the students will :

  • be introduced and become familiar with the methodology and the practice of translating technical and scientific texts from the field of physics, mathematics and from other technological fields, based on international standards
  • become aware of the necessary skills and methods that will enable them to cope with translation difficulties of technical/scientific texts from Greek into French, while also making use of the standard support systems facilitating the translation procedure
  • develop the necessary skills for creating glossaries, will learn how to handle specialized texts and scientific sources. They will practice in finding the appropriate terminology and will broaden their knowledge by studying and translating specialized texts
  • gain the theoretical background needed so as to analyze etymology and create neologisms for the terms which are either new or not translated yet
  • be able to handle sources and translation-supportive material and will evaluate them so that after graduating they will be able to use them in their future working environments
