ARBC 4421 - Advanced Arabic Translation


Prerequisite: ARBC 4420  or comparable proficiency level as demonstrated in consultation with the instructor. This course will build on the knowledge and skills which students gained in ARBC 4420 and help them develop their skills to attain a high level of proficiency in translation by engaging them in different types of specialized translation from Arabic into English and vice versa. This will be accomplished through the use of a wide variety of texts: literary, legal, medical, technical, commercial, scientific, business, etc. Students will be trained to approach translation both as an art and a science by exploring the essential theories and concepts adopted in the process of translation by analyzing the nature and features of varieties of texts and by examining the interaction between content and form. Through intensive practical translation, discussions, and translation criticism, students will draw on linguistic points of view as well as on technical and creative writing. 3 credits
