About

Designed for professional translators, interpreters looking for a formal qualification, and language graduates wishing to become translators or undertake further research.

Overview

The MA Translation Studies programme at the University of Nottingham is designed both for professional translators and interpreters wishing to obtain a formal qualification, and for language graduates wishing to become translators or undertake further research studies. The course combines theoretical and practical training and makes use of our state-of-the-art translation and interpreting facilities.

This course offers two pathways: Translation Studies and Translation Studies (with Interpreting). Both pathways mainly consists of core modules which provide training in translation theory, technological tools, audiovisual and literary translation, between English and up to three of the following languages: Arabic, French, German, Portuguese, Russian,  Serbian/Croatian, Spanish (though it should be noted that not all pathways or modules are available for all languages). 

Students enrolled on the Translation Studies (with Interpreting) pathway will also have the opportunity to attend a module providing an introduction to interpreting. Supervision for the Targeted Translation Project is available in a wide range of areas offering research guidance and advice from specialist staff. The students will also have regular opportunities to meet with professional translators.
