Students will be provided with the terminology used in the area of Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure. The course has two clearly defined stages.
Firstly, a brief theoretical summary will be provided to deal with the main concepts around which the translation workshop will evolve.
Secondly, time will be devoted to the analysis of documents written in English as a source language. This will allow students to see the analyzed terminology in action and to understand the text register and style. Afterwards, the documents will be further reviewed to analyze the grammar and syntax of each particular document as a pre-translation task.
Special attention will be paid to the semantic field in the understanding that translation is a semantically driven task. Meaning, collocations and usage are going to be addressed as part of the translation process. False cognates are going to be reviewed to avoid common negative transfers that lead to frequent mistakes by Spanish native speakers.
The course will deal with different translation techniques (Functional Vs. Literal approach). During the course, students will be encouraged to develop a translation protocol to standardize the translation process in an attempt to avoid mistakes and to enhance translation quality standards.
