翻譯入門課

Translation: pitfalls and techniques

William Hetherington

課程簡介

我們常以中文的邏輯直翻英文,雖然意思都懂,但感覺就是不太自然,這可能是因為沒有考慮到語言習慣與文化差異。

本課程我們將學習筆譯的入門觀念,包括翻譯的類型、常見的錯誤以及練習的方法等等。學員將能瞭解中英文的差異、發現自己的盲點,進而學習更道地的表達方式。

本課程為基礎課程,適合從未學習過翻譯的朋友們來參加。

進行方式

1. 老師將於每週課前指定2-3篇翻譯案例
2. 老師帶領閱讀文章,並解釋較為困難的單字以及學員不理解的地方
3. 針對案例中的翻譯錯誤、不太順暢的地方,進行分析與討論
4. 課堂中的實作練習與檢討

備註

課程目標

  • 增進閱讀與寫作能力
  • 增進對於中英文轉換的理解

*本課程適合多益700分/全民英檢中高級的學員參加。

*每期課程都有最新的教材,歡迎舊生再次參加、繼續練習。

Summary

Translation is the culmination of language study for most people, and is the most challenging thing a language learner will do. Often we translate in ways that attempt to directly copy meaning from our native language into our target language, which overlooks cultural specificity. This is what the class will try to help students overcome!

Format

Students will be given notes and links before classes, but they only need to prepare something before the last class, when we go over translations everyone does themselves.

What you can learn from this class

This course will give students an overview of the concepts of translation, vocabulary and common errors. We will look into practice examples, after the class, students will become more aware of the differences between languages.

My experience for the class

I translate daily for my full time job (Chinese-language news to English), and as a graduate student I had to regularly translate passages from Chinese literature into English
相當於多益700分/全民英檢中高級,能以英文輕鬆地聊天,想加強討論能力者。 完整分級說明請點此連結

若學員人數不足,我們最遲將於兩天前通知大家,並協助各位全額退費。
