- Course DGS - Translation for Beginners – Intermediate (Japanese<->English)
During the first half of the term, students begin by translating short sentences to create fluent Japanese and English texts, which are checked by native speakers. During the second half of the term, our aim is to provide practical training for students to acquire good translation skills and techniques.
By the end of the course students will be expected to write translations up to a semi-professional level and learn to pace themselves effectively.
