Applying terminology knowledge to translation
Problem-based learning for a degree in translation and interpreting
Teaching activities in the field of Translation Studies should reflect the changes that have been taking place in recent years within the framework of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). One of the main changes brought about has been to make students active participants in their learning processes. Problem-Based Learning (PBL) is a method of instruction that encourages students to “learn-to-learn” by working cooperatively in groups to find solutions to real-world problems. Using PBL methods, translation students can develop the problem-solving skills necessary to meet the challenges posed by terminology work in their day-to-day activities as professional translators. This paper illustrates how terminology courses may be adapted to current European higher education requirements using PBL methodology.
