Course Description

We live in a world of many peoples, languages, and cultures. The need to understand each other is obvious, even pressing. But how is it done? One way is through translation—taking something foreign and making it familiar enough to understand. How is this done? What are the difficulties? What is gained and what is lost? We will look at translation theories and at examples of translation from around the world.

This is an online/virtual synchronous course that follows the published schedule of course meetings and requires attendance at all sessions. Tufts virtual courses are designed to provide high-quality, flexible, and interactive courses to Tufts and visiting students.
