The portfolio consists of translations into Arabic, English according to suggestions and comments received during seminar sessions, and an overview (up to three pages in length) in which the students will explain their poetic and stylistic approach to their translation projects as well as main strategies used in the process of translation. As part of their overview, the students should include some biographical and bibliographical information about the authors and the works they chose for their translation project (up to half a page).
