There is a growing demand for highly qualified translators able to handle multilingual communication in both the public and the private sector. Moreover, the evolution of translation markets has led to professional translators having to cope with activities not traditionally regarded as ‘pure translation’, such as localization, editing, subtitling or project management

Professionally oriented translator training is needed in order to ensure a good match between graduate competences and employer requirements. The Department of Translation and Interpretation is offering translation courses in line with the international standards.
