Course Details

In professional business settings, "analysis of the source-language text" is one of the critical skills in Japanese-English translation processes. Lack of this skill could eventually lead to inaccuracies in translation or leave out important information that could seriously impact decision-making. This workshop is designed to address these problems through a variety of translation techniques in grammatical points related to: effective utilization of relative pronouns; proper punctuation of the translated English text; and recognition of the difference in tense structure between Japanese and English grammar, etc. We will work collaboratively in groups of 2 or 3 to translate a variety of materials such as novels, legal documents, IT manuals and lyric. Through this group activity, participants will gain confidence in their understanding of English grammar and how to better interpret original text. This workshop will deal with English to Japanese translation and is useful both for beginning and intermediate-level translators.
