Make Your Language Work For You!

Translation has an impact on virtually every aspect of society, politics, and economics, but how much of what you know about translation is really true? You might be surprised to learn that translation is a highly diverse and complex market - and one that's bigger than you might think.

What is translation?

Translation is the transfer of a written message from one language to another. Some of the biggest misconceptions about translation are:

Any bilingual person can be a translator or interpreter - just as having two hands doesn’t make you a pianist, speaking two languages doesn’t automatically make you a translator Translation is a small, niche market The need for translation is declining in the modern world Translators and interpreters do the same thing Machine translation is destroying the need for human translation ...

Translating in Professional Contexts is a six-week course highlighting the potential of translation to reshape target discourses in professional contexts.

It aims at raising awareness of processes involved in mediators' renegotiating aspects of meaning-making between languages.

A set of socio-cultural phenomena manifested through language emerge, in the process of meaning transfer, which broadens the perspective of what may be at stake in translation practice.

Professional translation contexts such as corporate advertising, media, tourism advertising, translation in academic and audiovisual contexts provide instances of shifts intended to enhance appropriateness in a target language with a view to enriching trainees' perception of intercultural variation and highlighting its importance....

An Itinerary from Classical Past to Future

This online course focuses on presenting the evolution of the Ancient Greek Theater starting from the 5th century BC till the 20th-21st century. Greek theatre, mostly developed in Athens, is the root of the Western tradition, while the word’s root also originates as Greek. It was part of a performance culture that evolved in classical Greece and included festivals, religious rituals, politics, funerals and many more.

The tragedy is also a word originated from Greece and as it turns out, the dramatic performances were really important to the Athenians.

The course answers to questions like In what context was ancient Greek drama written and produced in classical Athens? What were a performance tragedy and comedy like? What factors did contribute to the survival of a small number of ancient plays to present day? When did the first modern public production take place? Which are the most significant trends and tendencies observed in the staging of ancient Greek drama in modern times?... [-]

An Itinerary from Classical Past to Future

Classical Greece is considered to be the influential culture which is linked with the foundation of modern Western culture and stands as the substructure of Western civilization. A great number of ideas and practices that were conceived and elaborated during the Classical era, continue to play an important role in modern life. Vases, sculptures, written sources and other archaeological finds were the ultimate source that provided all the stages of their life and a fully detailed description of the ancient Greek citizen and that seems to be just one out of many reasons to find the ancient Greek culture so mesmerizing.

This online course aims to acquaint participants with the "core" of classical civilization, which is the foundation of western culture, through monuments by introducing the concepts of the ideal citizen, democracy, and philosophical thought as reflected theoretically and practically in ancient Greek religion....

An Itinerary from Classical Past to Future

The present course “An Itinerary from Classical Past to Future: The City & the Theatre” is a journey in Greek history and civilization, seen through the prism of the classical city-state and ancient theatre. We start by learning about the city, including its development, structure and how the buildings were developed in the urban center and lastly the complexity of its architecture.

Further on, the lessons extend to the decisive role of religion in the Greek political life, where Gods and Heroes play a particular role in all the decisions taken for common activity and life. Gladly, we have full access to their daily life routine and their community values, due to vases, sculptures, written sources and other archaeological finds that provide us all the necessary details. Last but not least the course gives us a chance to examine how many of the lifestyles of ancient Greeks survive with stunning continuity in modern society.... [-]

This online course aims to offer a journey to the fascinating developments in Greek art from ca. 1200 to ca. 30 BCE. The participant will have a unique chance to learn the very beginning of the Art developed in Greece and its evolution.

The course learning journey begins with the decoration of tombs, till the first jewelry design. Even if you’re new to all this, it will surely be a good start to discover such peculiar forms of art and even more, get one fine first taste of the Greek culture, which will make you ask for more.

Greek art is instantly recognizable worldwide, even though most non-specialists find it difficult to understand its development or even name some of its most typical examples. Looking at Greek art in museums, illustrated books or tv documentaries may be fun, though it can sometimes leave the viewer none the wiser as to its secrets. Why did the Greeks invent naturalism? Why did they paint their pots? Did they really exercise or even fight in the nude? In short, what is “Greek” about Greek art? The programme addresses these and many more questions through richly illustrated lectures and carefully planned assignments.... [-]
