DELC420: MA Translation Project

The Translation Project is a core element of the MA in Translation. It provides an opportunity to specialise in a topic that interests the student and will be supervised by one or two members of staff with relevant expertise from the Department of Languages and Cultures.

The 15,000 word project should include a 5,000 word translation of a text selected by the student, with guidance from the supervisor. Translation notes should be provided in footnotes. A 5000 word critical commentary on the methodological approach and theoretical frame for the translation should be included.

Students will study DELC401 Research Skills for Modern Linguists, which will support the research and writing of the Translation Project. They will also be introduced to a range of theoretical and methodological approaches through the core module on applied translation DELC416 Academic and Practical Methods in Translation.
