Summary

Our MSc Translating programme is designed for those who want to work as professional translators or in the field of translating. The programme has its main focus on translation and translation technologies, but with fewer mandatory courses and a much broader range of optional courses in professionally relevant subjects you can tailor your programme to your interests and professional needs.

Language combinations In the practical translating courses students opt for one of two ‘strands’, corresponding to their chosen language combination: Strand A Study of English + one other language from Chinese, French, German or Spanish. Students work in both directions between the two languages chosen. Strand B Study of English + two foreign languages from Chinese, French, German or Spanish. Students on this strand work from the two chosen languages into English.

Facilities Students benefit from excellent facilities for translating including a range of state-of-the-art Computer-Assisted Translation (CAT) software packages, digital resources for translating and interpreting as well as student-centred study facilities.
