About this Unit
The unit provides support for students in the BA (Interpreting and Translation) program to develop their analysis skills of the texts they will confront in their translation work. It is a bilingual unit, that is texts in both English and the respective Language Other Than English will be analysed to reveal the structures of meaning and linguistic and contextual features of the texts. It encourages close readings of source texts, understanding where extra-textual knowledge is relevant, and identifying essential meaning components underlying surface linguistic features.
