Instinct: A Translator’s Best Friend

In this workshop, students were sensitized to the power of their instinct as readers and translators, and taught how to use it as a tool when working on a translation task. Since instinct is a sharp tool, it is necessary to use it with caution and care. The workshop also included a discussion about how to develop habits that keep our instincts well-honed habitually, as well as a discussion about how to ensure that it is kept in check.
