Program description

Translation MA

You will build your language skills to become a professional translator or to work in other translation-related roles in the language industry.

More specifically, you will receive advanced training in translation-related competences, such as document preparation, information mining and using translation technologies (including machine translation). You will also study the nature of the language industry and learn how to navigate the professional/business, technological and theoretical aspects of translation.

You will practise specialised translation taught by professional translators, simulating real-life scenarios and covering different topics (for example: business, legal, scientific and technical translation). We offer Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Greek, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish paired with English at specialist level (languages subject to teaching availability and/or student demand).

Optional modules, such as an additional language paired with English, literary or audio-visual translation, corpora for translation or research methods, will allow you to customise your learning experience.
