Bernardini, Silvia. 2004. The theory behind the practice: translator training or translator education? In Malmkjær, Kirsten, ed. Translation in undergraduate degree programmes (Benjamins Translation Library 59). Amsterdam: John Benjamins. pp. 17–30.


Bernardini, who reserves the term ‘competencies’ for what otherwise may be called ‘skills’, suggests that professional translators need three ‘capacities’, namely, awareness, reflectiveness and resourcefulness. These, the suggests in this paper, can be greatly enhanced by means of what she terms “discovery learning”, in her case of evidence provided by a variety of types of language corpus.
