    Student thesis: Master's Thesis


    In order to raise the standard of teaching and learning translation and interpretation, one of the essential points is to understand the fundamental issues of the theory of translation and interpretation as well as the qualities expected of translators and interpreters. Therefore, this Field Study Report attempts to review some of the literature available on these questions and make a survey of various translator and/or interpreter training courses outside Vietnam. Then, based upon the implications given by these theoretical issues and the findings from the survey of these courses, this Field Study Report tentatively suggests ways to raise the standard of teaching translation and interpretation at the Hanoi College of Foreign Languages. Accordingly, the context of the Vietnamese situation is always kept in view throughout these discussions.
