This course covers theoretical and practical questions of localisation, ie, the translation and adaptation of software, websites and other electronic material. Over the course of the last ten years the translation of websites and computer applications has become a dominant topic in translation, affecting both theory and practice. Students will analyse a variety of electronic or screen texts and will learn to translate software applications and websites using a variety of computer-based translation tools. The course will also deal with theoretical issues arising within the localisation paradigm. The software packages used in this course include SDL Trados, Passolo, DejaVu and Across.
