Classes are held at either the University of Adelaide North Terrace Campus or at Bedford Park. For detailed information on this course, please visit, select `ITAL? in the drop down menu and find the course by title. This course provides an introduction to the theory and practice of translation for students who have no experience of translation but a good command of the Italian and English language. It involves the translation of texts in various styles, including journalism, advertising and literature, from Italian into English. At a theoretical level, the topic introduces the issues involved in translation and the problems raised by the translation of various genres. It also aims to introduce strategies to resolve difficulties in the areas of vocabulary, idioms, cultural equivalence, and syntax. This is a problem-based course and active participation is required of students in tutorials and on-line discussion groups, where students will discuss problems encountered in their translation assignments and their application strategies to resolve them.
