COURSE OVERVIEW
The Department offers full-time postgraduate day courses leading to a Postgraduate Diploma and Master Level, intended for people wishing to study translation or interpreting with two Main Languages (Maltese and English) and one Passive Language (from Italian, French, German and Spanish). For these languages, students will either be native or non-native speakers of Maltese.

The course aims to:
• provide the opportunity for translators and interpreters to learn and develop core translation and liaison/consecutive and simultaneous interpreting skills
• deepen linguistic awareness and understanding of the nature of language in general and of translation (both process and product)
• further enhance competence in both source language and mother tongue, including developing an ability to identify and operate in a variety of language styles and registers
• equip students with the necessary skills for professional employment in the field of translation and interpreting (including familiarity with both technical and specialised registers, editing skills and work experience), remote or video-conferencing interpretation, sub-titling and translation
• equip students with the necessary skills for professional employment in call centres.
 
LEARNING OUTCOMES At the end of the course students will be able to:
• efficiently research and familiarise themselves with specialised terminology of new subject areas for the purpose of translation and interpreting
• undertake the independent translation of a range of institutional or technical texts to a professional standard
• undertake interpreting assignments of a liaison, consecutive and simultaneous type
• undertake revision and editing of translations.
