Introduction to Translation Webinar Series with Regina Landeck

Webinar 05-F18: Source Text and Target Text / September 17, Monday, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

  • Many exams fail because the candidate did not successfully analyze the source text for its meaning, structure, background, tone, and literary devices. This webinar aims at raising awareness of these important aspects of a successful translation.

Webinar 06-F18: Translation Processes and Practice Session / September 18, Tuesday, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

  • What goes into a successful translation? Which processes are involved? This webinar will provide some guidance. Candidates are requested to translate a text before the webinar. We will discuss the translation processes and look at the elements that make this text challenging.

Webinar 07-F18:  Revision Techniques / September 19, Wednesday, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

  • Translation - like writing - is a process. The first draft is never the final version. In this webinar, we will discuss revision techniques for exams and professional translation work.

Webinar 08-F18: Freelancing as a Translator / September 21, Friday, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

  • Most translators in Canada are freelancers. Taking the step toward self-employment can be scary and requires serious thought and preparation. This webinar offers some food for thought about freelancing in today's global economy.
