Teaching Methods:

Also, through special exercises, students are familiarized with identifying on the internet specific economic and political texts, from which they are asked to translate an excerpt.

New Technologies:

From the first lesson students are trained in the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) useful for the production of translations and electronic communication. Special emphasis is given to the utilization of applications for the production and sharing of documents, video communication, organization and planning of works, etc.

Evaluation Methods:

At the end of the semester, students are assessed as follows:
On the day of the examination, which takes place in a teaching room using personal computers in the presence of the teacher, students are asked to locate on the internet a specific text of a relatively high degree of translational difficulty and a specific excerpt of 250 to 300 words. They are asked to transfer this snippet it to a text editor file, in which they have created a table with two columns. In the left column they paste the text to be translated and on the right, they type their translation. After completing the translation, they must send it to the teacher by email. Assessed: the ability to locate the text to be translated based on a command they receive and their translation skills.
• It is permissible to use any printed or electronic aid and internet resources. Please note that it is forbidden to exchange emails and, more generally, to communicate with third parties.
