Overview

On the Intercultural Communication in the Creative Industries programme at the University of Roehampton, you will use your language skills and first-hand experience of different cultures to explore new territory in and around translation and the media world. You will reach beyond the traditional roles of translation and localisation by studying how these disciplines are applied in the creative industries, paying particular attention to the practical application of these skills in a professional environment.

You will be introduced to the emerging areas of transcreation and cultural adaptation, which refer to the creative process of altering messages so they are suitable for the target local market, while maintaining the original intent, tone, and style. You will also use your multilingual and multicultural skills in order to translate for the arts, advertising and entertainment sectors.
