La commission d’accréditation d’evalag (Evaluationsagentur Baden-Württemberg) http://www.evalag.de a accrédité ce programme et lui a décerné le label international evalag pour l’accréditation des programmes.


La mission du programme de Licence en Langues Vivantes et Traductions est de permettre aux étudiants de promouvoir la communication interlinguistique. Ils acquerront une connaissance et une pratique complètes de l’arabe, du français et de l’anglais en même temps que les autres langues internationales, ainsi que l’art de la traduction et de l’interprétation d’une de ces langues à l’autre. Une fois le niveau professionnel acquis, les diplômés seront en mesure de nantir le Liban, pays au confluent de l’Orient et de l’Occident, d’un multilinguisme historiquement sain et d’une capacité d’ouverture, de dialogue, de communication et d’échange, enrichissante à tous les niveaux, en l’occurrence économique, sociopolitique, éducatif et culturel.

LFR216Techniques of Expression in French
3 credits    |    Pré-requis: LFR201
This course aims to introduce students to the analysis of different oral or written discourses they face, through communication theories, enunciation and argumentation. It will also develop formal and stylistic particularities of each type of discourse.
LFR201Advanced French course

LLA318Arabic Morphology and Syntax
3 credits    |    Pré-requis: ARA210 or LLA210
This course aims to help students acquire the basic rules of Arabic morphology and syntax (from the perspective of functional grammar). It will allow them to produce a grammatically correct text. The method adopted uses a text or a series of typical examples, from which the students derive the rule, acquire it and apply it appropriately.
TRD415Computer­Assisted Translation
2 credits    |    Pré-requis: TRD321
This course aims to provide modern solutions for fast and accurate translation. To compete in the global market, we need a fast and accurate way to translate our correspondence, our offers, our contracts and other communications, placing stress on the time factor as an essential aspect.
TRD424Economic Translation A­B/B­A
2 credits    |    Pré-requis: TRD321
This course aims to introduce students to an understanding of economic reasoning and fundamental concepts and mechanisms of the economy at national and international level, in order to familiarize them with the specific terminology in this area and help them to translate specialized texts from French into Arabic and vice versa.
TRD425Economic Translation A­C/C­A
3 credits    |    Pré-requis: TRD322
This course trains students to understand and translate economic texts from English into Arabic, and vice versa. The topics of the translated texts include basic concepts of economics, microeconomics and macroeconomics. Students will be able to understand and apply all stages of economic translation, concept analysis, terminological research and context analysis.
ELL313English Morphology and Syntax
3 credits
This course introduces the basic concepts of syntax and morpho­syntax, considering both functional and formal aspects. It introduces students to the study of the meaningful components of words and sentences, and of the principles by which parts of words are organized into larger lexical units (morphology), and by which words pattern into phrases and sentences (syntax). Data from English and other languages will be analyzed, in order to illustrate how language is structured.
TRD321General Translation A­B/B­A
3 credits    |    Pré-requis: LFR201 and (ARA210 or LLA210)
This course is designed to exercise linguistic habits (competence and performance) of students, to enable them to translate a French text into Arabic and vice versa, making it easy to read and avoiding, as far as possible, the usual interference.
TRD322General Translation A­C/C­A I
3 credits    |    Pré-requis: TRD220 and ENG240
The objective of this course is to introduce students to translation from Arabic into English and vice versa, through a wide variety of texts that may range from technical and scientific to literary; with emphasis on the concepts in both languages rather than on lists of vocabulary.
TRD423General Translation A­C/C­A II
3 credits    |    Pré-requis: TRD322
The objective of this course is to let students translate, from Arabic into English and vice versa, a wide variety of long texts that may range from technical and scientific to literary, with emphasis on cultures and civilizations. Students are also invited to do documentary research based on the notion of “translation documentation”, in order to completely understand the key concepts related to any domain whatsoever.
TRD421Legal Translation A­B/B­A
3 credits    |    Pré-requis: TRD321
The course will highlight the fundamental rules that govern the structure of a written law, and its legal style. It will help students to decipher the structure of a court order, law, contract, a written legal and notarized doctrinal text; the drafting often routed by the first steps of the translator. The course will also seek to point out a few key rules controlling the legal style. It will show how the legal style uses a special design and a high precision vocabulary. The course also aims to prevent apprentice translators, for example, making some of the most common defects in the drafting and legal translation.
TRD416Linguistics and Translation
3 credits
This course aims to make students aware of the fact that the advent of the first language and terminology had some impact on the translation process. It assesses the contribution of linguistic and terminology in translation studies, explaining how the translators accept the science of language as a precision tool in their professional practice. On the theoretical level, it will explain the decisive influence of language and terminology on translation, in the context of structuralism, Europe, the Prague Circle, and the United States, under the leadership of Eugene Nada, whose work marked a new attitude showing that translation is no longer considered as only an art. Finally, it will demonstrate how the theoreticians of language and terminology are many, and to emphasize the need to link the theory of translation to a theory of language. In practical terms, this course will include an overview of the morphology, lexicography, lexicology and terminology, etc.
TRD310Methodology and Rules of Translation
2 credits
The purpose of this course is to enable students to discover for themselves, and to deduce from texts, the basic principles of translation studies; allowing them to go beyond the limits of translation by correspondence (transcoding) to the interpretative translation, stressing the importance of the context to the text.
LFR316Morphology and Syntax
3 credits    |    Pré-requis: LFR201
This course is designed to cover both branches of lexicology: lexical semantics and lexical morphology. After defining the discipline, as well as the components of the word and the lexicon, students will study lexical semantics (linguistic sign, lexicographic definitions, semic analysis and semantic relations). Then they will learn the approach of lexical morphology, i.e. word formation processes (derivation, composition and particular systems).
TRD428Conference Translation A, B, C
3 credits
The students, either as translators or interpreters, will eventually be required to work within the framework of the main international institution, the United Nations. The main objective of the course is, therefore, to present at the UN and its specialized agencies (operation conferences within these agencies, procedures, and specialized vocabulary etc.).
TRD429Sight Translation A, B, C
3 credits
This course aims to enable students to recognize the structures and forms of discourse, speed reflexes and improve their language fluency; and to refine the choice of words and expressions. The three languages ­ Arabic, French and English ­ will be worked in the same way and also in all combinations.
