The students reinforce the knowledge gained in the previous year, about the properties of scientific and technical text, phases required in the creation of such text, specifics of Japanese scientific and technical language and issues appearing at translating scientific texts. While writing their master thesis, they take turns in presenting their texts at the seminar; by analysing the texts of other student under the supervision of the lecturer they further their active knowledge of Japanese technical language. Using the contrastive analysis on Slovenian and Japanese on the lexical, syntactic, textual and pragmatic level, they test and analyse the methodological approaches, micro- and macro-strategies and common translation issues in translation to Japanese.
