This Sight Translation workshop focuses on the general skills of reading, textual analysis and vocabulary to practice verbal text conversion from the source language to the target language. The training will present different tiers of exercises that will allow participants to practice with speed reading, reading comprehension and meaning extraction from text, in order to facilitate the process of Sight Translation. The ultimate goal of the activities presented during this workshop aims at enabling participants to produce correct, coherent and fluent translations.
