The Translation - Interpreting in Three Languages program from Birzeit University aims at developing an understanding of translation/interpreting in its professional contexts, grasping the technological environment in which translating takes place, and a mastering the practical translation and interpreting skills required to become an efficient translator/ interpreter. 


The Translation - Interpreting in Three Languages program from Birzeit University will (a) introduce students to skills essential for translation work from Arabic (language A) into English/French (language B) and into French/English (Language C); (b) give students practical training in those skills; and (c) introduce students to theoretical issues in translation studies.

The MA is a highly vocational program that aims at training professional translators and conference interpreters.

Our graduates are expected to have excellent employment prospects in small companies and institutions, or chosen to remain as a freelancer, and some may choose to pursue stimulating careers as professional translators and interpreters with major local, regional, or international organizations. In addition, others may opt to pursue an academic career locally, or regionally.
