Summary

Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study at Swansea University.

The Extended MA in Translation and Interpreting (MATI) is a uniquely specialised variant of our Professional Translation course, with an emphasis on interpreting skills. It develops you from an excellent foreign language speaker into a successful professional linguist.

Your advanced translation studies will focus on general, administrative and technical text types, interpreting in one or two of local government, health, police and court, and training in industry-standard computer-assisted translation tools.

The first part of the degree includes the chance to specialise in interpreting, audiovisual translation, machine translation and software localisation, terminology management, video making or digital publishing.

In the translation work experience module you simulate translation companies by working with local translation businesses and delivering on real commissions to professional standards.

In the second part of the degree you are presented with a choice of two extended translations, or an academic dissertation, or a 13-week internship at a translation company in the UK or overseas.
