What is Translator Competence?

Centre for Translation (April 7, 2011)

SEMINAR SERIES : Translation seminar series

MAJOR SPEAKER : Malmkjær, Kirsten
LENGTH : 125 min.
ACCESS : Open to all
SUMMARY : In this seminar, I will compare the concept of translation competence with a concept that I have called translator competence and which is more closely associable with (though very far from alignable with) the notion of competence which we find at play in theoretical linguistics. I will explore the cognitive foundations of this phenomenon, the more conscious text processing elements of it insofar as we have any grasp of what they may be, and finally I will touch on less systematisable, socio-cultural elements, which are blatantly obviously conscious, willed, strategic translator behavior.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
