Need something à la carte?
Since I started running this course in 2014, I’ve been contacted by American translators working towards the ATA exam and British translators wanting practice before doing the ITI membership exam. There have been working translators thirsty for their first proper feedback in years. I’ve helped English-to-Spanish translators with their into-English writing skills before sitting the official sworn-translator exams. DipTrans resitters have come asking to do the full course, but focussing on just one paper.
And each of them working at their own level and to their own timeframe.
“I would definitely recommend this course, Gwen is a fantastic tutor and is able to draw out the best from you as a translator and pinpoint specific areas where you can improve.”
“Thanks again for your extremely rich and competent work, Gwenydd! I have the feeling that I haven’t learnt so much English in such a short span of time in many, many years.”
“I found the Spanish-to-English translation course more than met my expectations. The feedback and comments from Gwen on each translation were meticulous and perceptive. In some ways the course independently confirmed what I already suspected about my strengths, weaknesses, and the areas of translation I feel comfortable with, and this is useful in itself. But there were also things I had not been aware of, such as a tendency to edit the text, and spending too much time obsessing about individual terms. I would definitely recommend this course if you want to improve and polish your translation skills, whether or not this is for the exam. Probably the thing I most appreciated was that Gwen is genuinely interested in the art and process of translation for its own sake, not merely as a means to an end.”
“The course is extremely well planned and is full of really useful tips for preparing for the daunting DipTrans exam. The detailed personal feedback provided by Gwenydd is enormously helpful for honing your translation skills and identifying your weak spots. Gwenydd is a highly skilled professional and I also benefitted greatly from working with someone with more experience and who really knows the industry. I would highly recommend this course both to those wishing to perfect their ES>EN translation skills in general and those planning to sit the exam.“
“I began the course in September 2016 and was able to finish by the time of the DipTrans exam in January 2017. The course is structured in a very practical way, firstly familiarizing you with the basics (translation, editing and exam format) and then walking you through each of the semi-specialized papers. Translation theory is included in all of the modules in such a way that it is accessible and immediately useful to someone who has not done extensive prior study of the theory. I was able to do extra reading on translation theory, which was quite helpful, however the course does stand well on its own as well. During the course, there are 10 sample exam papers with detailed feedback as well as 2 Skype tutorial sessions. The feedback was very constructive and precise and the Skype tutorials were focused. Gwen is quite a demanding teacher, which helped me to produce better quality work on the course. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is thinking about taking the DipTrans exam.“
“I thought your feedback wonderful and very incisive.”
“The course that Gwen provides for the DipTrans exam was incredibly useful in my preparation for the exam. The feedback on the translations was by far the most valuable aspect of the course for me. The feedback on each translation was extensive and the fact that Gwen recognised when I repeated mistakes shows how invested she is in improving and assisting translators in training. The further material and guidance Gwen provided was a great bonus to the practical modules.”
“I am very grateful for the opportunity to complete the Advanced Spanish-to-English translation course. It was a difficult journey that challenged me in many ways to improve both my Spanish and English proficiency for translation with every module. The format was strategically laid out to cover two texts for each specialization such as legal, business, literature, and science. Two modules covered common English mistakes and proofreading skills that were very beneficial. The thorough feedback after every module with notes and corrections was very useful to see many of my blind spots in translation and to help me develop a more robust translation procedure. This course was definitely worth the investment in time to gain invaluable skills that I can use in translation and future careers. Thank you Gwen for your diligence, time, and effort in creating an excellent course to equip translators with the tools and mindset to excel.”
