Descripción del curso:

All documents benefit from the eye of a trained editor, and translated documents are no exception. Starting from this premise, we will examine the editing process, distinguishing among different levels of editing (substantive edit, copyedit, proofreading), and the kinds of queries editors need to make to authors and translators. We will also consider the importance of building subject-specific glossaries and scenarios in which the translator has no choice but to be his or her own editor. Participants will engage in class discussions as well as small group and pair work on translations that need editing as well as contribute to the translation and peer edit of other documents.
