Prerequisites (for future units)
This unit is a prerequisite for:
12 ECTS course consisting of a Theoretical Module, Consecutive Interpreting, Technical-Scientific Translation and post-Editing.
The course provides students with the tools for metalinguistic analysis, with a special focus on specialized texts, in order to enhance students' translation and interpreting skills between Italian and Spanish.
The course aims at providing students with knowledge and skills in order to understand the theoretical and practical basis of translation and interpreting. The following modules will be taught: technical-scientific translation and post-editing, consecutive interpreting and court interpreting.
Develop knowledge and train skills in professional translation and interpreting from both a theoretical and a practical point of view, combining research perspectives and professional standards.
Develop self-assessment skills.
At the end of the course students will be able to:
Lectures and interpreting/translation practice, including team work.
Theoretical module: theory and practice of court interpreting, with consolidation of consecutive interpreting skills. Simulations of interpreter-mediated court hearings.
Technical-scientific translation and post-editing: translation practice of technical-scientific texts (also using CAT tools) combined with training in translation-related soft skills.
Interpreting: consecutive interpreting and sight translation practice from and into Spanish combined with training in interpreting-related soft skills. Special emphasis will be placed on the interpreter's role in a changing labour market, where Tablet Interpreting and CAI Tools are being increasingly used.

Semester 1 and 2.
Theoretical module: a simulation of interpreter-mediated court interpreting assignment and a question on the theoretical contents.
Technical-scientific translation and post-editing: a translation test from and into Spanish, after the submission of individual dossiers (“carpetas”) containing all the assignments carried out during the course.
Interpreting module: an consecutive interpreting exercise from Spanish into Italian and vice-versa.
The following will be assessed: adequacy, functionality, accuracy, and reliability. Both contents and the general approach (i.e. paralinguistic and non-verbal communication in the case of interpreting) will also be taken into account.
Continuous assessment (peer evaluation, feedback from outsiders in simulations, etc.), and both written and oral final tests.
