In this section you’ll learn about translating language and translating culture. Knowledge of French-speaking cultures, and reflection on language and culture differences in general, are important when you’re translating from one language to another. Indeed, translation skills are another set of skills that you will develop as a learner of French. Of course, it takes years of practice to become a translator, but as a beginner you will nevertheless start developing basic knowledge and skills related to translating. This section will give you a flavour of what that is like.
