Despite the fall from favour of translation in many foreign language programmes at university level, other than those specifically focused on translation skills, and the fact that translation is frowned upon by many language learning theorists, this paper illustrates how translation still has an important role to play in more vocational language degree courses. Both as a language and cultural awareness exercise and also as a skill in itself, not least, learning how to manipulate language and how language manipulates meaning.

Abstract

Despite the fall from favour of translation in many foreign language programmes at university level, other than those specifically focused on translation skills, and the fact that translation is frowned upon by many language learning theorists, this paper illustrates how translation still has an important role to play in more vocational language degree courses. Both as a language and cultural awareness exercise and also as a skill in itself, not least, learning how to manipulate language and how language manipulates meaning.
