Student Profile(s)

Giuseppina

"The most positive experience during my MA was meeting people that are fully involved in the translation environment. We had experts coming from Asymptote, translation agencies and even other countries, such as Spain, to share with us their knowledge. What was absolutely fantastic for me was meeting Dr Andrew Walsh from Universidad Pontificia Comillas, Madrid, who shared with us his experience in gastronomic, literal and football translation. Further, he gave us some advice on how to behave in the translation world and to handle pressure and time constraints.

The absolute surprise and benefit was to develop my professionalisation step-by-step throughout the modules. The first module was based on translation theories and it was extraordinary to see how those theories were applicable to every text (technical or literal) we analysed. Having started a work experience placement soon after the end of the modules, thanks to Dr Sarah Maitland, I discovered how much translation studies has helped me to build my translation process and my research work."
