Guest lecturing

If you are a Higher Education institution looking for ways of widening and enhancing the content of your advanced translation courses, I can offer:

 

 

  • other classes, including some English/French specific translation, focusing on highly problematic aspects (e.g. wordplay, modalities, levels of speech, emphasis).

Benefits

Benefits for your institution include:

 

  • highly applied topics which will easily integrate into your programmes, either reinforcing existing content (e.g. translating culture) or, in some cases, adding new dimensions (e.g. business film material, translation project management aspects, communication with clients);    

 

  • content based on my research in applied Translation Studies, extensive experience in advanced translation teaching (32 universities, 7 countries, several EMT courses; see below) and my work in audiovisual translation and voice-over recording;  

 

  • jargon-free presentations offering ready-to-use frameworks optimised for problem solving and practical decision making; the underlying principles are such that the frameworks can readily be adapted to other translation problems;

 

  • systematic use of quality assurance questionnaires showing consistently high levels of satisfaction (out of the last 785 workshop participants, 89% were very/extremely satisfied); 

 

  • possibility of workshops jointly organised by your institution with a professional organisation bringing several advantages: cost sharing, enhanced vocational dimension for the students, networking, helpful addition to your provision in terms of recruitment and possible EMT requirements;

 

  • training certificates, which will enhance your students’ CVs, awarded for each workshop.
