This seminar will draw primarily on texts by Slovenian authors and translators that I have worked on over the years to highlight a number of common errors encountered. Areas covered will include capitalization, punctuation, word order, and word choice. I will begin by providing general tips for improving translations. Special attention will then be given to the following topics:
  • relative clauses and relative pronouns;
  • translating Slovenian toponyms and other proper nouns;
  • using articles and prepositions; and
  • choosing the right word.
Time permitting, we will look at the principles of the Plain English Campaign and try applying them to selected texts of Slovenian origin.
