Description

Elective Course

In this course, students practice translating from English to German using a variety of texts written in different genres. These texts refer to contemporary life in Germany, other German-speaking countries and Hong Kong and usually deal with topics like culture, politics, and social life. The course will be divided into two parts: Part I will focus on the analysis of the major structural, lexical and semantic differences between German and English. Part II will concentrate on translating a variety of text genres from English to German in order to provide students with information on contemporary German topics and life-style.
