Log translation


Eleven skal oversette prosjektlogg fra verkstedet til engelsk.


After any project in the workshop every student writes a log. Your job during this project will be to translate the logs you have written into English.

A few things to remember:

  • A log is simple and direct in tone, keep it short.
  • Use the correct technical terms (no “thing” or “stuff”).
  • Remember the difference between formal and informal language. What to use here?
  • Word order is not always the same in English and Norwegian.
  • Remember subject-verb agreement, this can be tricky even in simpler texts.
  • Remember to use the correct technical terms. This is especially important in logs.


You will have two 45 minutes classes to prepare your translations and a short vocabulary list.
