About this course

Translation and Interpreting MA: This course concentrates on advanced translation work on general, administrative and technical text types, interpreting (in one or two of the following environments: local government, health, police and court), and training in industry-standard Computer-Assisted Translation (CAT) tools. Part 1 of the degree also includes opportunities to develop further specialised skills in interpreting, audiovisual translation, machine translation (MT) and software localization, terminology management, video making or digital publishing, while in the Translation Work Experience module students form simulated translation companies, working with local translation businesses, and undertake real commissions to professional standards and deadlines.


Modules include: Foundations of translation and interpreting; advanced translation (language pair 1); translation tools; a range of optional modules including: advanced translation; interpreting, history and theory of translation; translation technologies; audiovisual adaptation (subtitling, dubbing, audio description); terminology management; translation work experience. There is also the option to study a new language intensively (French, German, Italian, Mandarin or Spanish), or to pick up again at intermediate level a language (French, German, or Spanish) not studied since secondary school.
