This course is taught in a mixture of French and English. A high level is required in both of these languages.

Translation classes will help you build a competence in translation practice, improve your writing skills in French or English, and have a theoretical approach to languages and translation. Students will learn how to translate a literary or more civilization-oriented text from French to English and vice versa; to acquire different translation techniques, as well as an enlarged and richer lexicon, adapted to register and context; to have a grasp of the compared syntax of French and English; to translate the tenses of the past; to handle the different registers and levels of language; the translation of cultural references. Classes rely on collective training and translation from literary or journalistic texts.
