Using sources in English - writing about them in Danish: In search of a translation literacy in academic writing

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review


This study investigates the scope of a kind of translation literacy involved in the interlingual translation, summarising and paraphrasing which take place when Danish university students write project reports in their native language about academic texts in English. The resulting changes in re-contexutalisation and the changes in the representation of various levels of voices in both source and target texts have serious implications for the reader's comprehension of the content as well as for the language and style of the students' writing.
