A collaborative approach to teaching translation
This mini-project, led by Juliette Rutherford and Khadidja Merakchi, LINCS, and Sui He, Swansea University, was funded in 2021/22.
The purpose of the project was to develop a workshop for translators to address the concept of translating metaphors, and the complexities of this in teaching and translation. The workshop developers took a collaborative approach, realising the benefits of this type of learning.
The workshop was held in April 2022, and was attended by a range of translators who worked through a number of examples, using French, Chinese and English as the translation languages.
The authors have plans to further develop this workshop and have taken their work to a disciplinary conference.
