This course offers you three pathways to help you learn and apply the theory of translation and gear your studies towards your future goals. These are: professional translation; forensic linguistics and translation; and translation and intercultural communication.

You might choose professional translation if you wish to keep a broad range of careers in the translation industry open to you. If you prefer to focus on language and communication in the highly sensitive contexts of investigative interviews such as translation in criminal and civil justice, you can choose forensic linguistics and translation. Translation and intercultural communication develops your sensitivity to cross-cultural transfer and prepares you for work with all kinds of organisations.

You will develop a portfolio of your own translations, in consultation with a professional translator, and gain experience through practical group projects of a working environment. We also give you training in the application and use of the latest translation technologies and tools.

In our large multimedia self-access room, you will be able to enjoy extensive self-study resources and make use of a range of language-specific tools. These include keyboard switch options, customised spell-checkers and comprehensive dictionaries. You can access translating facilities, including specific professional translation software. You will benefit from access to our digitised Sanako language laboratory for advanced language learning, and our high-spec professional interpreter training suite.

We cater for students with an unusually wide range of language pairs (one of which is always English) and welcome students from across the globe. This makes our seminars particularly engaging – you will take part in fascinating cross-cultural exchanges with your peers and our staff. All seminars have a generic focus, which is then applied to your language pair in practice via projects and essay work.
