Farneste, Monta. 1999. Academic writing as a basis for written translation. In Veisbergs, Andrejs and Ieva Zauberga, eds. The second Riga symposium on pragmatic aspects of translation. Riga: University of Latvia. pp. 87–92.


This report is an effort to draw attention to important and evidently quite neglected aspects that should help to prepare translators. One of the main tasks of translators is to learn to perceive the translation as a means of communication of another culture. The report points out that several aspects, which are important for future translators, are the subject matter of a course of Academic Writing.
