Course description
The course presents Translation Studies as an independent discipline. It opens with several ‘definitions’ of translation (Jackobson, Nida, Toury), and certain translation topics: Interlingual, intralingual and inter-semiotic translations; the notion of translatability; parallel texts; the notion of equivalence; adequacy vs. acceptability; translation of metaphors; domestication vs. foreignizing; etc. It then moves to present the central theories in TS: the Descriptive Paradigm; Skopos Theory; sociological and cultural aspects of translation; translation in post-modernist theories; translation and the notion of transfer.
