Course summary

Overview

This challenging and exciting course will introduce you to key methods and approaches in translation studies and computer-assisted translation, specialising in the processes and practices of audiovisual translation. You'll also work with students specialising in a wide range of languages and use specialist software to produce multilingual translation projects.

You’ll work between English and one or two languages, including Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish. You’ll also have the chance to study modules informed by research taking place at our Centre for Translation Studies on topics such as machine translation, corpus linguistics, interpreting and genre analysis.

Leading researchers work alongside contracted practitioners to equip you with a range of practical skills, as well as a solid understanding of the principles that underpin audiovisual translation and applied translation, to enable you to launch an exciting career in the language services industry.

Learning and teaching

We use different teaching methods to help you develop a range of practical skills as well as a sound theoretical knowledge base. These include lectures and seminars, interactive online resources, and practical classes where you’ll make the most of our facilities.

In addition, the Centre for Translation Studies runs a regular programme of Research and Professionalisation Talks from visiting speakers who share their experience as practising translators, interpreters, subtitlers or project managers.

On this course you’ll be taught by our expert academics, from lecturers through to professors. You may also be taught by industry professionals with years of experience, as well as trained postgraduate researchers, connecting you to some of the brightest minds on campus.

Assessment

You’ll be assessed using a wide range of methods. Translation tests are an important element, as are essays together with individual and team projects. You’ll also be assessed on your individual summer project, which can be either two long translation pieces, one long subtitling project, or one short research project.

Career opportunities

A postgraduate qualification in Audiovisual Translation Studies equips you with valuable practical skills, underpinned by a solid theoretical foundation. You’ll also develop advanced skills in IT, research, communication and analysis that are very valuable to employers.

Many of our students go straight into practice with their project management or translation skills, whether they work in large organisations, small or medium-sized language service providers, or as freelance translators and audiovisual translators. Others pursue related careers in language services. Our graduates work in organisations such as the UN and affiliated organisations, the European Parliament and the European Commission, commercial enterprises and NGOs.
