French 307. Translation, Art and Craft

An exploration of what the phrase “lost in translation” implies. Translation is considered here not as an end in itself, but as an effective means to enrich vocabulary, to refine writing style, to review grammar and to appreciate better what is “untranslatable” in French and English. Not recommended for students seeking extensive oral practice in French.
