The MA in Translation has been designed to provide a gateway into the translating profession or into doctoral (PhD) studies in the field of translation studies. It offers a combination of specialist modules in translation studies alongside the opportunity to gain the linguistic and technological skills necessary to enter the profession. The programme is suitable for practising translators who do not have, but wish to gain, formal qualifications. The MA covers the necessary linguistic and technical skills for a career in specialist industries such as legal, technical, or medical translation. It also provides a unique chance to focus on literary translation and translation’s relationship with the arts and culture, one of the research strengths of the department. Building on your existing language skills, you will have the opportunity to learn how to research specialised subjects to produce professional translations in different contexts. You will be encouraged to apply insights drawn from linguistics and translation theory and to use your technical skills in Computer Assisted Translation (CAT) tools.
