You will undertake advanced translation work on general, administrative and technical text, and training in industry-standard Computer-Assisted Translation tools.
The first part of the Professional Translation programme from Swansea University includes opportunities to develop specialised skills in public service interpreting, audiovisual translation, machine translation and software localisation, terminology management, video making or digital publishing.
In the translation work experience module you simulate translation companies by working with local translation businesses and delivering on real commissions to professional standards.
In the second part of the degree, you are presenting with a choice of two extended translations, or an academic dissertation, or a 13-week internship at a translation company in the UK or overseas.
The vocational MA in Professional Translation will significantly enhance your prospects for a career in translation. Over the course of your studies, or your internship, you may make important connections for your future work.
Graduates from this course enter a range of different translation and interpreting roles. Many also undertake research degrees and pursue a career in academia.
