This MSc is designed to provide first-class training in specialised translation with interpreting.

By focusing on specialised translation and liaison, public service and consecutive interpreting, you will be equipped with the skills needed for professional work in the translation and interpreting industry and for research in translation studies. You will practise translation in specific language pairs and will become conversant with translation technology which has been transforming the way in which professional translators and interpreters work.

Some are working as in-house and freelance translators and interpreters, while others are active as project managers and translation technology experts in organisations such as Xerox, Amazon, SDL International, Expedia, Hogarth, SDI-Media, ITR, TransPerfect and Deluxe to name but a few. In addition, the MSc is designed to serve as a basis for a Translation Studies PhD.
