An Introductory Course for Potential Legal Translators

The purpose of the project is to present the content as an open source of education that could serve as a basis for further educational courses in translation of translated language. Since I teach translation of legal texts I am familiar with this content, so I already have a framework i. e. the course structure and some content as well. On this basis, I would like to design an initial training course as an open source of education. First I intend to test such a course with students and then, in the next phase, build a framework for next educational courses for legal translation.
