About this Unit
This unit aims to develop skills in Community Translation (also known as Public Service Translation), which focuses on facilitating written communication between public services and community members who do not have a good command of mainstream language(s). The aim of the unit is for students to develop skills in producing target texts in styles appropriate to specific groups and communities, and to the content and function of the source text. The unit also aims to develop skills in researching and using appropriate specialist terminology, editing and revising, and producing camera-ready documents. On the basis of these skills, the unit is to further develop students' ability to reflect upon translation in terms of strategies and appropriateness in relation to the target audience as well as make critical written and oral assessment of relevant translations. The unit will be available, depending on sufficient demand, for Arabic, Japanese, Mandarin, Spanish, Korean, Persian and Vietnamese.
