Formación de traductores en lenguajes de negocios en el contexto colombiano: propuesta de formación



Universidad EAN (Bogotá, Colombia)

This proposal is based on the doctoral research project on translation that I am developing at the University of Alicante. Its main area is didactics in business translation in the Colombian context. This project begins by analysing the academic sector of Colombian translation, and then it describes the real need for business translation, in contrast with the profile of current translators. Its main purpose is to design some teaching strategies to train business translators in the Colombian context. It includes a solid theoretical framework about translator’s competencies, the Colombian translation context, how academic and professional languages are faced by Colombian translators, and trends on translation didactics. In order to collect information, a group of students was taken as the sample. The results allowed me to describe and analyse how students learn translation in the business context. A series of surveys, interviews and observations were used to collect information about teaching and learning strategies, as well as about the linguistic, pragmatic and cultural needs of translation students. The information collected is the basis to create teaching strategies, specifically designed for business translation students in the Colombian context.
