The journal seeks original articles on linguistics with special focus on comparative studies, anthropological linguistics, science of cognition, social communication and literary studies. Since the founding of the journal in 2012, it has been our goal to foster the development of linguistic studies through an open exchange of ideas, while maintaining the highest standards of academic publishing. Contributions are subject to a double-blind peer reviews for authenticity, ethical issues and usefulness. The reviewing procedure is supervised by the International Advisory Board. The articles are published mainly in English, German, French and Polish. Academic Journal of Modern Philology is an open access journal published annually by the Committee for Philology of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Wrocław Branch and the College for Interdisciplinary Studies, University of Wrocław.


The subject of this article is the machine translation (MT) of the German terms Lehrbefugnis (“authorisation to teach”) and Lehrbefähigung (“teaching qualification”) into Polish. First, the role of these terms in international academic careers is highlighted and then their semantics is described. The next point of the article is basic information about the principles of MT. The structural equivalents of German terms in Polish and typical mistakes made by translators are also discussed. The concluded part of the analysis is that translators are not yet able to translate such specific terms correctly, therefore further work (also of a linguistic nature) is necessary to improve their quality, e.g. by supplementing lexical resources.
