Building Translation Skills in an Academic Framework

Lucian Blaga University, Sibiu

The article investigates the issue of translator education at undergraduate level in the context of an ever-increasing need for professional translators on the market. Although a number of studies have focused on the teachability of translation, there are certain aspects in translator education/ training that are still neglected and which may account for certain shortcomings of the teaching/learning process. I argue that identifying a number of key competences in professional translators and using that information to develop a set of basic skills in undergraduate students by means of well-chosen class activities may be a more realistic and successful approach.
