Course Description

Editorial translation plays a significant role in various fields in today's world, just as it did in the past. Historical sources have demonstrated that translation, as an ancient practice, has long served as a means of cultural and civilizational communication between nations and different cultures. However, the study of translation has evolved and become an academic discipline in its own right across various fields of knowledge.
Therefore, offering courses in translation is of utmost importance in preparing a generation of qualified Arab translators to engage in written translation as either an independent profession or as part of their responsibilities in other professions.
