Discoursive Specialization Course for Language Interpreters

In order to be able to translate fluently, it is not enough to know 2 languages โ€‹โ€‹or have the appropriate qualifications for their levels of proficiency. Because the profession or function of a translator / interpreter primarily involves the practice of accurately reproducing the information encoded by the communicator in a particular bilingual field.

Thus, in addition to the primitive knowledge of industry working terminology and translation styles, the issue of professional specialization of a translator in a specific dialogic discourse for a specific field or professional circle, where this translation will be used, comes to the fore.

As a content of the “Discursive Specialization Course for Language Interpreters”, our School offers 5 modular training to provide techniques and tools that will help consolidate and deepen background knowledge of a particular field for further translation work in 1 main and 2 additional areas. At the student’s choice, it can be any field of modern well-known or narrow specialties, interdisciplinary field or branch of emerging technologies.
