This article presents a case study carried out with students of the subject Traducción General «BA-AB» (II) - Inglés-Español / Español-Inglés, taught in the first year of the Bachelor’s Degree in Translation and Interpreting, at the University of Malaga. In this regard, at a first stage, students were trained on how to exploit the possibilities offered by different e-tools and resources (language corpora, lexicographic resources, or the web, inter alia) for the creation of textual equivalences in those cases where the manipulation of idioms and the absence of one-to-one phraseological correspondences may pose problems to translation. To this end, an introductory seminar on phraseological manipulation and translation was followed by a hands-on session, where trainee translators were presented with some scenarios including manipulated idioms in the source text (ST). Overall, the insights gained from analysing the results obtained will allow us to determine to what extent the different tools can help students walk the tightrope of translating phraseological manipulation.
