Ensinador Paralelo: Alicerces para uma pedagogia nova

Diana Santos, Alberto Simões


After outlining some of Belinda Maia’s main ideas of how to use comparable corpora in translation teaching and learning, we present a new translator training tool: Ensinador Paralelo. It is an extension of Ensinador, originally developed for use with monolingual corpora (Simões & Santos 2011). This new tool produces exercises based on translations (previously done by pro- fessional translators or students, as we will see).

In order to make the text more interesting to Belinda Maia we also study critically four translations of Lewis Carroll’s children books.
