Up to now, there has been little discussion of how to communicate the results of historical research to students of translation to whom this vast amount of knowledge may be complex, overwhelming, or irrelevant. This article is an attempt to provide some insights into this matter. These aspects are considered: identifying the goals of a history of translation course; defining history and historical research; outlining the various approaches to history of translation; taking account of existing histories of translation in the construction of a course; and assigning tasks to students.
