New Translating Class

This spring IEC will be offering Intro to Translating.  This course is for advanced ESL students who are fully literate in both their first language and English, with academic writing skills in each. It will give an introduction and orientation to the field of translation.  

This course will have a strong focus on development of professional writing skills. In addition, students will learn about the basic skills in translation, practice translating texts, understand translation theory and the technology involved in the field, and discover the local professional industry in translation. 

This course is offered in partnership with the University of Minnesota's program in Translation and Interpreting, and we are pleased to have Professor Scott Homler as a co-teacher for this class.  This is a unique opportunity for students who are fluent bilinguals to get a first step into the exciting career field of language services.  

Students who successfully pass this course with a minimum of 90% attendance will receive a certificate upon completion.

Intro to Translating will be offered in the afternoons from 1:30 - 3:30, Monday - Thursday for 6 weeks, starting April 20. Please email to get more information.
