The Translation and Interpreting Studies (Advanced) program at Macquarie University will prepare you with the knowledge and skills you'll require for a career in this dynamic field. 


Translation and interpreting is just as much an art as it is a skill. Talented professionals are proficient bilinguals who love language, who possess excellent public speaking skills and who are meticulous right down to the tiniest details. 

They are supremely talented at instantly transforming expressions, colloquialisms and other culturally specific references into statements their target audience will understand.

The Translation and Interpreting Studies (Advanced) program at Macquarie University allows you to achieve greater depth in either translation or interpreting, or in both disciplines. 

You'll also have the opportunity to take electives that further develop your specialised practice in areas such as subtitling, as well as translation and interpreting in medical, legal and business settings.

Career Opportunities 

Graduates will be well prepared to pursue a career as professional translators and interpreters in a range of settings including:

  • Community translation and interpreting (e.g. governments, courts, tribunals, police, clinics and hospitals)
  • International Conferences (primarily conference interpreting)
  • Business (e.g. business meetings, internal and external documents and contracts)
  • Industry products (e.g. manuals, localization)
  • Regional and international events (e.g. Olympics and Paralympics)
  • Broadcasting and publishing


The program is a NAATI (National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters) approved course for certification at professional and advanced translator and interpreter's level.
