The prerequisite(s) for this Teaching Unit (Unité d’enseignement – UE) for the programmes/courses that offer this Teaching Unit are specified at the end of this sheet.
This course sets out to simulate the realistic conditions of a translation project. Students will have to tackle the various steps of an Italian-into-French translation project with professionalism, from order to delivery (i.e. administrative tasks, documentary and terminological research, translation, revision). Students will be asked to translate one or several texts dealing with the two specialized translation fields selected at the start of the academic year, among economic translation, legal translation and scientific/technical translation. Students can mix fields as they wish in their two C languages. The different tasks will be carried out in the computer lab, meeting specific deadlines and relying on various tools.

Students cannot be tested on the same field in their two C languages
