Professional Translation Studies

Professional Translation Studies

This is a new unique course that looks at all aspects of the work of a professional translator working in Wales today. The course prepares students for a career in translation and gives an insight into the translation industry. The course also provides students with the opportunity to follow individual interests and to specialise in areas such as general translation, creative translation, legislative translation, translation technology and interpreting.

The course is not only aimed at current students. One of the main features of the course is that it also offers further training to those already working as translators and who wish to develop professionally and gain a further recognised qualification in the process.    

The course therefore provides training and is suitable for students of all backgrounds, including translators who are already working within the industry or those who are eager to take the first steps towards a career in translation.

Certificate, Diploma or MA

One of the main advantages of the course is that it offers a very flexible approach. Consequently, students may choose to study only for a Certificate qualification or they may choose to continue to complete a Diploma and then a full MA. Students may study part time or full time, and it is also possible to study individual modules only.
