What is a “good” translation? “Good,” the most common word of praise in the English language, stakes a claim to universality. Yet, framed as an objective truth, this word becomes dangerous.
Gitanjali Patel FRSA believes that translation is a force for change, as well as an untapped resource for teaching students how to harness their linguistic abilities to become critical, yet responsible, global citizens.
Students are increasingly looking to study subjects that have relevance in ‘the real world’. Meanwhile, uptake of MFL at UK schools and universities is plummeting. We need to re-frame the benefits of language-learning for students and translation is the way to do it.
