This volume presents a comprehensive study of what constitutes
Translation Competence, from the various sub-competences to the
overall skill. Contributors combine experience as translation
scholars with their experience as teachers of translation. The volume
is organized into three sections: Defining, Building, and Assessing
Translation Competence. The chapters offer insights into the nature
of translation competence and its place in the translation training
programme in an academic environment and show how theoretical
considerations have contributed to defining, building and assessing
translation competence, offering practical examples of how this can be
achieved. The first section introduces major sub-competences,
including linguistic, cultural, textual, subject, research, and
transfer competence. The second section presents issues relating to
course design, methodology and teaching practice. The third section
reflects on criteria for quality assessment.
