Do’s and Don’ts for papers in International Languages and Cultures: 

Do:    
  • Acknowledge secondary sources when necessary: when in doubt, cite!
  • Proofread your papers carefully.
  • Try to express your ideas using the structures that you know in the foreign language, not those that you know in English.
Don't:
  • Write your paper in English first and then try to translate.
  • Just summarize plot in a literary analysis paper: make sure you are analyzing what the author does and how he/she does it, using evidence from the text to back up your argument.
  • Plagiarize. Failure to acknowledge outside sources will be dealt with severely. Plagiarism includes having others assist in the writing of your composition.
  • Consider your first draft to be your last draft. Make sure to leave yourself time to revise and rework.
  • Use online translators.
