The course aims at investigating various historical approaches and methodologies in translation studies, i.e. from Benjamin to Ortega y Gasset; from Vinay&Darbelnet to Jakobson and Nida; from Levy to Toury and even further to touch on Sherry Simon and postcolonial translation theory. Alongside theory, the course will focus on translation practice to compare and contrast the various approaches, methods, procedures and tools and learn more about translation studies as a discipline. Theory and practice will be presented one along the other as integrated aspects that should be inggrained in the learning process that is meant to be a dynamic, interactive and collaborative one via such teaching practice as World café, flipped classroom, TBL, collective reading and forums. Assessment is both formative and sommative.
The course provides students with advanced competences in English linguistics and translation, with emphasis on metalinguistic analysis and translation theory, as well as on particular aspects such as special languages and the media. The course is taught in English both by a main lecturer and by experts and collaborators, among them translators and interpreters, and includes practical exercises in consecutive interpretation.
The course aims to
A BA degree in Translation Studies, Foreign Languages and/or equivalent, with three years of English in the undergraduate degree course.
"Lingua e traduzione inglese I" is a 4-part course. There is one annual Theory Module part and three Language Modules; the first one deals with English for Economics, the second one focuses on Proofreading and editing and the last one on Interpreting.
The Theory Module is a 30-hour annual course thus classes are held over two terms.
News about the teaching channel will be made available as soon as possible. In 2020-2021, in term one and two, the Theory Module course was held in remote mode via Teams and Aulaweb. According to Covid-19-related safety measure change, the course might be held in remote, in blended mode or even in class unless otherwise indicated by the national health service.
Active participation on the part of students is required and attendance is monitored as it is part of the formative assessment.
The course, held in English, combines theory and practice to approach translation in its full complexity. Starting from core theoretical notions useful for the critical reading of texts belonging to different types and genres, the course employs empirical tools and strategies suitable for a critical analysis of texts and translation practices. The course comprises of lectures, participatory class work, and assignments. Students will be required to actively engage in class work and discussion, also presenting readings as well as their own translation projects. Translation practice will be mainly carried out from English into Italian.

Assessment is both formative and sommative. The formative assessment is based on interactive and consistent attendance, on completed translation tasks and other activities including discussion forums and a guided assignment to complete before the beginning of term two.
By the end of the course each student should have an individual portfolio that includes all their accomplishment. The portfolio together with the syllabus will be the starting point for the oral exam.
All Language Module marks will count 50% of the final grade and the other 50% will come from the Theory Module formative and sommative assessment.
The oral exam will last approx. 20 minutes and will be held in English.
Students are required to discuss the syllabus, their own work as in each portfolio, including their term one assignment, and complete a translation task or Source Text Analysis.
Students are assessed on their competence of theory principles, their ability to apply concepts and strategies to the analysis and translation of the chosen issue, and on accurate use of metalanguage.
