Students will produce a translation portfolio during the course of the semester. Although the course will include a brief overview of the history of translation and translation theory, it is primarily designed to provide students with hands-on translation practice. Students who take this course should possess strong verbal communication skills, a solid grasp of grammar, and advanced reading and writing skills in both Spanish and English.
