Treść
Translator Education is becoming increasingly practice-oriented and learner-driven. Students are becoming agents in their own education, while the teacher, traditionally understood as the ultimate authority, changes into a guide who helps in, but not necessarily orchestrates the whole process of learning. This type of education makes use of real-life tasks, authentic assignments, and team projects, with the aim to equip future translators with practical knowledge. The present study shows that a task which simulated real-life translator-client contact was beneficial for translation trainees and early, inexperienced translation graduates. The study participants engaged in a technical translation assignment during which they corresponded with clients, i.e. the authors of the source texts. The outcome of the study indicates that training students to contact their clients and cooperate with them plays an important role in the translation process. The results of the study also indicate that the translator-client cooperation is in general well perceived by both the translator and the client.
