Translation

**Why study this course?** A globalised world has warranted a growing trend in the need for translators. The Translation BA degree will engage you with all aspects of technical translation as well as some aspects of literary translation, focussing on practical work and the professional skills needed for a successful career in translation. **More about this course** Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Linguistics (CIOL), this vocational degree provides excellent grounding in language, culture mediation, and translation theory and practice. Enjoy the opportunity to translate multimedia texts such as advertisements, comic strips, songs and films, as well as documents from specialist areas including finance, law, IT and medicine. We'll equip you with the transferable professional skills required in the translation industry and give you an in-depth knowledge of translation theories, methods and procedures. You'll also study interpreting skills and learn about the various techniques used in liaison interpreting within business settings. As part of the degree you'll have the opportunity to undertake a work placement where you can benefit from our links with the EU Directorate General for Translation, Moscow State University, Peoples' Friendship University of Russia, the British Council and the United Nations. This Translation BA course offers English language combined with French, Spanish, Italian, Arabic, Portuguese, German, Polish or Russian. In particular cases, there may be the possibility to learn a further foreign language outside your translation pair. We also organise an extensive programme of industry speakers, professional translators, interpreters and IT specialists. **What our students say** "I could not better express how essential the BA in translation is to anyone wishing to embark on a career within the translation industry. I look back on my academic experience and feel that the course has provided me with invaluable expertise, knowledge, skills and confidence to embark on a profession I am passionate about." Laurent Thibaud "The course focused on the professional world and prepared us for the demands of being a translator (working to deadlines, translating, proofreading and editing). The work placement was a real learning curve and taught me a work method and translation techniques that I still use today when producing a translation." Céline Cabesos "I really enjoyed my course. I’ve always loved languages and it’s great to have a practical application for my interest. We’ve had talks from the industry, ranging from professional translators to IT specialists. I also undertook a work placement, which gave me a clear idea of the work place." Jeanne Okie
