About the Event
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Hello everybody. I am Dr Graeme Ford.
I'm going to do a little series of translating classes in 2022. I hope you'll join me.
We'll be looking at the grammar of the plain information text. This is the type of text used in the Australian NAATI translating test.
A very accurate and exact translation can be made of this text type. Translating it gives us insight into the grammar of both languages.
FEEDBACK FROM STUDENTS
The ACAA Translating Master Class is truly a powerful enabler for translating theory to practice. The guest speaker Dr Graeme Ford is knowledgeable, engaging and amiable. He helps learners, and practitioners alike, spot the nuances between languages and equips them with guidelines and techniques, as the participants ‘drive and navigate’ at the same time in a wonderful – and maybe fresh for some – journey into translating. I strongly recommend the Master Class to anyone who wishes to take a whack at becoming an achiever in translating.
讲座由 David Dukes 主持，由 Dr. Graeme Ford 主讲。两位早在三四十年前就开始学习中文，对中国的语言和文化深入的了解。大师课中，Dr.Graeme 首先让我们重温了关于 time phrase 和 prepositional phrase 的翻译技巧，然后用两篇富有澳大利亚特色的文章具体讲解翻译的方法。讲座互动性非常强，每位参与者都有机会进行翻译，与大家进行交流，得到教授的指点。
