Summary

This MA is designed for multilingual students who want a career in the creative industries.

In our global culture, talented people with multilingual skills are increasingly sought after by the creative industries. In this trailblazing MA you will have the opportunity to combine your language and translation skills with the study of London’s vibrant creative industries.

On the programme you will use your language skills and first-hand experience of different cultures to explore new territory in and around translation and the media world. You will reach beyond the traditional roles of translation and localisation by studying how these disciplines are applied in the creative industries, paying particular attention to the practical application of these skills in a professional environment.

You will be introduced to the emerging areas of transcreation and cultural adaptation, which refer to the creative process of altering messages so they are suitable for the target local market, while maintaining the original intent, tone, and style. You will also use your multilingual and multicultural skills in order to translate for the arts, advertising and entertainment sectors.

You will be able to choose optional modules from the pool offered in our other MA courses, the MA Audiovisual Translation and the MA Specialised Translation. In addition, you will be able to study modules from a wide range of creative disciplines including film, media, journalism and publishing.

Placements with translation/localisation companies and cultural institutions are at the heart of this MA. Placements are not compulsory, but you will benefit from the extensive industry contacts of members of staff and the visits of key professionals in order to help you find a placement that suits your interests.
