Course summary

This MSc is designed to provide first-class training in specialised translation in the scientific, technical and medical areas. The programme offers you the opportunity to develop your translation and language skills, to deepen your understanding of the workings of language as an essential tool of communication and to gain vital experience in the rapidly developing area of translation technology.

By focusing on the translation of scientific, technical and medical texts, you will be equipped with the skills needed for professional work in the translation industry and for research in translation studies. You will practice translation in specific language pairs and will become conversant with translation technology which has been transforming the way in which professional translators work.

Some are working as in-house and freelance translators, while others are active as project managers, translation technology experts and computational linguists in organisations such as Xerox, Amazon, SDL International, Expedia, Hogarth, Cannon, SDI-Media, ITR and Hoffmann-La Roche to name but a few. In addition, the MSc is designed to serve as a basis for a Translation Studies PhD.

Translation is a dynamic and rapidly developing profession, which calls for linguistically-talented people with a clear understanding of the issues involved in cross-cultural transcoding and who are able to utilise the latest translation technology.
On completion of this MSc, you will be well placed for a fast-track progression in your chosen career.
