Dutch-English Translation MA

Dit vak wordt in het Engels aangeboden. Omschrijvingen kunnen daardoor mogelijk alleen in het Engels worden weergegeven.

Doel vak

The aim of this course is for students to further develop their
Dutch-to-English translation skills and gain a deeper understanding of
the specific issues that need to be considered when translating Dutch
texts into English. In addition to discussing various mechanical aspects
of translation, the course will hone reading skills in the source
language and address cultural adaptation and localization issues in the
target language. Students will gain practical translation experience and
exposure to translation theory and genre-specific aspects of
Dutch-to-English translation. They will have the opportunity to
translate excerpts from a wide-variety of texts, for example academic,
legal, political, marketing, literary, and commercial, and to discover
some of the particularities of each.

or with a group and to come to class prepared to discuss their work. The
course is worth 6 EC, which comes down to roughly 168 hours of work


4-5 sessions total + regular homework assignments and final assessment.


Students will submit a final portfolio for assessment at the end of the
course. This portfolio will contain their revised homework assignments +
detailed reflections on the translation process, a group translation and
terminology list, an evaluation of an existing translation, and a final
translation task.
