Summary

Translators and teachers of foreign languages need each other: translators need formal academic training and recognition and teachers of foreign languages need students. Unfortunately, translators know only too well that most FL teachers are not competent translators, and FL Departments generally consider translation as an activity beneath the dignity of scholars. This mutual contempt must be overcome so that translators can obtain the benefit of formal training and an academic degree, FL Departments the benefit of increased enrollments, and the overall quality of translation in this country raised to the level found in most other nations. Close examination of the translation process shows that it can be described justifiably as scholarly, intellectual, artistic, and even creative, quite apart from its obvious career aspects. There are many cogent arguments for awarding undergraduate or graduate degrees in translation, as is the practice in most other countries. (Author)
