As the area of study combines the underlying theoretical issues involved in literary, technical, screen, legal, scientific and commercial translation, publishing, localization and management with the practical aspects of the translation process, the programme is of interest to all graduates whatever their future career route: commercial, legal, scientific or technical translation; literary or screen translation; localization, research, teaching or management. The course also includes a stream focusing on audiovisual translation, thus opening other avenues of employment to students in areas such as communications and media.

The programme caters for a wide range of students who wish to acquire a critical understanding of contemporary issues in translation alongside the practical skills required in today’s fast evolving translation industry. Versatility and employability are thus enhanced. Recent graduates have found work as freelance/permanent translators and interpreters for EU institutions, but thanks to the soft skills acquired during the course, graduates have found employment in fields such as marketing, public relations, human resources and public administration.


In 2019, the MA in Translation & Terminology Studies course has been accepted for membership in the prestigious European Masters in Translation (EMT) network by the Directorate-General for Translation of the European Commission.
