Case Competitions: An Opportunity for Building Knowledge about Professional Translation

Author:

Anne Schjoldager

Abstract

The paper presents and discusses a teaching project with case competitions for MA students of specialised translation at the Aarhus School of Business (ASB), Aarhus University. The project was intended as one way of helping participants to prepare for working life by giving them an opportunity for building knowledge about professional translation. The paper gives some background information about our MA of specialised translation and then sets out to discuss what sort of knowledge translation students are expected to acquire while still at university. It presents and discusses the aims and setup of two case competitions that were organised at the ASB. Drawing on the results of a series of online questionnaires, the paper ascertains how the project was evaluated by the participating students and what sort of knowledge they seem to have been building in connection with their participation.
