The Network consists of more than 70 Master’s degree programmes offered by other European universities with which we maintain close links and have ERASMUS agreements for student and teacher mobility.
Membership of the EMT Network means that our students have preferential access to traineeships with European institutions, and that we are given priority in relation to the DGT’s Visiting Translators Scheme. The course also belonged to the ERASMUS Academic Network OPTIMALE - (Optimising Professional Translator Training in a Multilingual Europe) with 70 partners in 32 European countries (including 27 in the European Union).
The Translation and Language Services Master’s degree at the University of Porto was planned as a two-year professional course in accordance with the guidelines proposed by the Bologna Process. The curriculum takes into account the ISO 17100 as well as the European Quality Standard for Translation Services EN15038 Eand is the result of the experience accumulated over 20 years of teaching Translation within the first degrees in Modern Languages and master’s degrees in Translation with associated work placements.
The degree has also benefitted from the contact maintained with potential employers during and after the traineeships, as well as from feedback from our graduates and the world of professional translation and language industry, both in the structure of the curriculum and in the content of the subjects taught.
The languages currently offered are: Portuguese, German, Spanish, French, and English, and from 2012-13 there is also the possibility of accumulating with these languages: Chinese, Italian, Japanese and Russian, provided there is a minimum number of students.
