Throughout the DipTrans course at metaphrasis we were provided with numerous texts which covered a wide range of different fields. Discussion and analysis was followed by a thorough feedback and further guidelines. Mrs Papakonstantinou directed us towards improving our translation skills and provided us with extra material and homework in order to master the “secrets” of successful translation. I have always believed that translation is impossible to teach, yet she managed to make it seem so easy. I consider myself lucky to have her as a translation trainer.
