Abstract:

The main aim of this book is to provide teaching ideas that can be
adapted to different learning environments and that can be used with
different language combinations. The pedagogical approach and the
activities, tasks and projects are based on Communicative, Humanistic
and Socioconstructivist principles: the students are actively involved
in their learning process by making decisions and interacting with
each other in a classroom setting that is a discussion forum and
hands-on workshop.

Clear aims are specified for the activities, which move from the most
rudimentary level of the word, to the more complicated issues of
syntax and, finally, to those of cultural difference. Moreover, they
attempt to synthesize various translation theories, not only those
based on linguistics, but those derived from cultural studies as well.

This volume will be of interest to translation teachers, to foreign
language teachers who wish to include translation in their classes, to
graduates and professional translators interested in becoming
teachers, and also to administrators exploring the possibility of
starting a new translation programme.
