“Translation, what's so difficult about that? Can someone who knows two languages ​​also translate?”
Translations can be found everywhere and in all kinds of forms: in subtitles of films, legal documents, leaflets, games and on websites. In this master's program you will learn the tricks of the trade and explore the practice of translation in a multilingual world.
A translator does more than convert a text from one language to another. Translation is a profession. You must have an excellent command of a foreign language, but also Dutch and a thorough cultural knowledge. But you are not there yet! You must also be able to empathize with your target audience and know what your target audience expects from a translation. Only with that knowledge and skills you can create cross-border and cultural connections.
During this one and a half year master's you will learn all the tricks of the trade and you will learn what it is like to translate for international organizations and companies, for example. You gain insight into translation problems and learn to solve the problems in a well-considered way.
Because Professional Translation is a so-called extended Master's, you can appeal to the Financial support scheme for students in extended Masters after graduation  .
