Training seminar for translation teachers
Tarragona, Spain 19-23 July 2004
The aim of the
seminar is to facilitate the acquisition of the teaching skills
most in demand in the training of professional technical (non-literary)
translators at university level. Those skills principally involve
the use of electronic tools, awareness of the current processes
of technical translation and localization, and interactive use of
the teaching space, both face-to-face and via e-learning techniques.
is designed to address many teaching environments in many countries.
It does not insist on a profile of any one 'ideal teacher', nor
on a set of fixed 'best practices'. Instead, it encourages awareness
of a number of approaches and is based on exchange between professional
translators and teachers.
days are supplemented by 1) the use of reference
texts written by the course leaders, and 2) an optional certificate
program that takes place after the seminar.
