I am a student of Translation Studies.
One of my modules this semester is Translation Theory. We have to write an essay on any topic related to Translation Theory (5000 words).
I have a personal interest in sports and would like to combine the topic of translation with the topic of sport.
Does anybody have any ideas for a research question?
I would be very grateful for some help.
| Ideas from a recent discussion || Feb 16, 2008 |
The ProZ.com community recently had a fabulous and extensive discussion on the role of translation theory in the life and profession of a translator (http://www.proz.com/topic/94828). I am sure among the many comments posted in this thread you will find some aspect that catches your attention and that you will be able to make into a full paper. I would be interested to know what topic you end up choosing. Best of luck with your paper.
| Ideas (to avoid, perhaps...) from a recent discussion || Feb 16, 2008 |
Indeed, one of a number of members/users of this site, staunch defenders of an elitist theory demanding that no-one who hasn't studied translation theory should be barred from this profession, recently contributed to a somewhat acrimonious and prematurely curtailed discussion* on the role of translation theory in the life and profession of a translator (http://www.proz.com/topic/94828).
Among the comments posted in that thread you might, with luck, find some aspect that catches your attention and that you will be able to make into a full paper.
* By which I mean the proponents of theory suddenly opted out of the discussion - which thus came to nothing of any value.

| ERIC database || Feb 16, 2008 |
You can start with this link:
ERIC is a digital library that is useful when it comes to any kind of research in education. Key in whatever you are searching for and you will get links to books, journal articles, conference papers etc. You can even view complete articles.
According to the website it has "1.2 million bibliographic records of journal articles and other education-related materials." Under "translation theory" I have seen lots of useful resources. I hope you find something interesting in your research area.
