Program Overview

Why choose this course
Originally launched in 1986, our recently updated Translation MA is one of the longest running in the world. Incorporating more than 30 years of experience in translator education, we attract students from all over the world

What you will study

You will develop professional translation skills under the co-ordinated guidance of professional translators and experienced academics. You will simulate real-life translation scenarios and cover a variety of specialisms, as you develop a solid grounding in the linguistic, quality, social, ethical and technological dimensions of the profession. You’ll confront a wide range of translation challenges, use cutting-edge software (for example, computer-assisted translation, machine translation and corpora), and gain a critical understanding of how technologies impact the profession.

Optional modules focusing on the creative, business, technological and research dimensions of translation enable you to customise your learning, according to your own strengths, personal tastes and career ambitions.

You will gain experience of language services provision through work placements and/or other tasks and collaborations.

To conclude your MA, you can choose between a topic-based dissertation, an extended translation and analytical commentary, or a work placement plus a critical report.
