“Music of Translation” contest, organized by the SUSU Department of International Relations and Regional Studies, wrapped up at SUSU. This year, the contest did not just include students from South Ural State University, but also from Chelyabinsk State University, Plekhanov Russian University of Economics, N.A. Dobrolyubov State Linguistic University of Nizhny Novgorod, V.I. Vernadsky Crimean Federal University, and Ural Federal University named after the First President of Russia B.N. Yeltsin.
The evaluation criteria for the competition were: completeness of translation; lack of factual errors, omissions, or arbitrary contraction of the text; translation’s compliance with the systemic and linguistic norms of the language of translation; preservation of the genre and stylistic specificities of the source text; diversity of translation techniques; the use of artistic and expressive tools; optimal realization of the communicative tasks; maintaining the form of presenting a translation.
Where earlier the contest was only for those studying English non-professionally, this year students of linguistic degree programs and areas of study took part in it for the first time. The jury picked winners under two categories:
Linguistic Degree Program/Area of Study – Anastasiya Zinovyeva, South Ural State University (Chelyabinsk), Institute of Linguistics and International Communication.
Non-linguistic Degree Program/Area of Study – Dariya Chichirina, Plekhanov RUE (Moscow), Faculty of Economics, Marketing, and Merchandizing
The winners of the contest will be awarded with certificates of appreciation. The organizers would like to congratulate all the participants, and hope to see their work in future contests.
