Identifying Translation Teaching Strategies: an Exploratory Study uri icon


  • This article presents the results of a research study developed in a Colombian university about translation teaching strategies. It aims at identifying the best way to develop translators’ competencies in Modern Language students, who will work for companies as language experts, including translation as one of their tasks. It is based on theoretical research compared to a survey applied to students of financial and economic translation and shows how their professors apply different teaching strategies, resources, activities and assign roles. It also includes how students interact in classroom compared to the real translation practice, the languages they combine in their translations and the textual genres used. Finally, it describes how students are assessed, as a strategy to close their learning process. As a result, conclusions and recommendations propose the use of current teaching strategies following the socio-constructivist approach.
