Project description

The TMT (Teaching Medical Translation) research project is under the direction of Prof. Joachim Kornelius. Its primary objective is to develop the cooperative translation method and learner strategies for acquiring medical terminology in the fields of translation studies, as well as for American and German medical students in the preclinical phase of medical school, all within a case-based learning context.

An additional objective is to develop multimedia learning tools for terminology and medical knowledge that are structured for purposes of encoding (text production), for use by translators, interpreters, and medical students. These tools are to be integrated into terminology management and CAT (computer-aided translation) systems.

Partners in this collaborative team include the Indiana University School of Medicine in the U.S.A. (Prof. Patrick Bankston, Director of Northwest Center for Medical Education, Indiana University Northwest Campus in Gary and Prof. Carl Marfurt) and the Institute for the History of Medicine at the University of Heidelberg (Prof. Wolfgang Eckart, Director of medicine as a supplementary subject for Students of the Seminar for Translation and Interpreting).
