RUSS 304 - Russian Translation

4 credits
This course investigates various aspects of translation theory and practice as applied to Russian language materials which students will translate into English.  The texts to be translated are all authentic materials written for native speakers of Russian and represent a wide range of non-fictional and fictional writings from various disciplines. Background readings will discuss problems of lexical, stylistic and linguistic features. We will explore various translation tools, including on-line translation programs, their advantages and limitations, and how to utilize various approaches.  Each student will undertake to produce a publishable text in English of a previously untranslated or badly translated work.  Prerequisite: RUSS 202
