Hi everyone,

As I am finishing my first semster at university soon , I have to write a portfolio of translation of 38 pages that will include all the source and target texts. I also need to write my CV and covering letter in both English and Arabic ( my lge pair).
Up to here I just need practice and I managed to finish my all my translation, but I couldn't imagine how to write a PDP reflective commentary of about 300 words to say what I learnt during the courses. Should any of you my colleagues of proz have any template or draft or even clues that could help me, please let me know.

Many thanks,
Djidji74

Hi

I assume that's what PDP is?

That's highly personal, you really have to think about what YOU learned. I suggest you take a blank page and write down all the things about the experience that come into your head, good and bad, and then order them into groups. That way you will have material to write the PDP.

For example, what did I learn from my Master's? A lot of theory (good), I was able to explore many aspects of translation and kinds of translation, I learned about developments and directions in the translation world.... I also learned of the gaps existing in the course (e.g. hardly any real training in editing, a potentially huge source of work).
