dc.description.abstractThis article discusses a project where trainee translators were invited to translate and publish Wikipedia articles as part of their formal translator training. The findings suggest that this form of authentic assignment with real-life application is a powerful teaching format well-suited for, and appreciated by, trainee translators. The article discusses the strengths and limitations of the format, concluding that genuine translation projects in formal translation training are a promising practical contribution to the repertoire of social constructivist translator training in that trainees are provided a way of experiencing natural translation challenges in a safe but realistic environment.pl_PL
