Culture in focus in German texts: a translation project


The Institutional Center for Languages and Translation (NILT/SINTER) has launched the course “Culture in focus in German texts: a translation project” targeted at the UFSC community. Registrations are open from 7 to 22 November 2022, on this link.

The course aims to develop a translation project based on functionalist approach to translation. The aim is for participants to perceive the cultural aspects within different textual genres in German, as well as to recognize the essential factors of the functionalist approach to translation, which is the focus of the project. As an outcome, participants are expected to feel capable of developing a translation project based on the textual analysis model for translation.

The synchronous classes will take place online, via Google Meet, from 23 November to 14 December, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., on Wednesdays. The course totals 16 hours and has 20 places. Participants are required to have A2-level proficiency in German to participate. Should you have any questions, please contact Juliana de Abreu at
