Complementary study for court-appointed translators and interpreters – an introduction to Czech Law. Module I (Winter semester): private law
The aim of the course is to prepare current and future court translators and interpreters, including those who already hold, or intend to apply for, a court translator's or court interpreter's licence, sufficiently in terms of professional legal knowledge and language skills so that they can perform their services competently and to the highest professional standard.
During their studies, they will acquire a basic knowledge of Czech law, including an orientation in basic Czech legal regulations. Emphasis is also placed on introducing the specifics of Czech law, the correct interpretation of which is crucial for meaningful translation into a foreign language (i.e. the language of a different legal system).
The course is also open to foreigners living in the Czech Republic so that they can supplement their knowledge of the Czech language with basic knowledge of Czech law and Czech legal terminology. At the same time, it can serve as an introduction to Czech law for all those who wish to get an elementary idea about it.
The purpose of organizing the complementary study course is to contribute to the improvement of the professional training of court translators and interpreters and to broaden their knowledge of Czech law in the broad sense of the word, which will subsequently increase the quality of the services they provide.
