    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. 

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    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. 

    Specific aims:

    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:

    • identify and solve translation problems in a strategic and effective manner, also taking into account as many contextual and situational variables as possible for each assignment;
    • apply knowledge, techniques and tools learnt in a functional and useful way according to the communicative situation and context;
    • autonomously organise and network with other colleagues in order to apply their competences in a cooperative way.
