Video005: Translation as Problems & Solutions (preparation)│سلسلة شرح كتاب الترجمة مشكلات وحلول – المحاضرة التمهيدية



Translation as Problems & Solutions is a textbook on translation (English-Arabic) for university students and trainee translators. It is written for Arab and Arabic speaking university students of translation at the undergraduate level. It is also useful to trainee translators. The book adopts a practical approach to translation and considers the whole subject in terms of problems and solutions. Driven by my passion to help students and would-be translators, this is the first webinar of a long-term series to study this book with students online.
