Program Description

Master in Business and Legal Translation (MA)

Middlesex University London

According to the National Centre for Languages, demand for translators "is being driven by globalisation, migration and political changes … giving rise to difficulties securing the services of appropriately qualified translators", and employers particularly expect translators to possess contextual, cultural and ethical knowledge and understanding of their field.As a student of this course you'll receive a free electronic textbook for every module

Our new translation courses have been designed to provide students with the opportunity to gain an insight into the needs of a professional translator in a globalised world where businesses, institutions and governmental organisations require more translation work. Our two courses, "Audiovisual and Literary Translation" and "Business and Legal Translation", cover fields of translation that are particularly in demand, opening up increased career opportunities and providing students with the competencies and skills to maximise their employability.

We work closely with the Institute of Linguists and are the only programme in London which offers specialised business or law modules alongside their translation modules. During the course students will gain valuable insights from professionals and academics in relevant areas and will have access to specialist facilities and equipment (labs and relevant software, such as SDL Trados and WinCAPS).

Students will have the opportunity to participate in an Erasmus exchange after they have completed taught modules at Middlesex, and research and write up their dissertation in the translation departments of prestigious partner universities in Alicante, Geneva, Heidelberg, Innsbruck, Leipzig, Paris, Vienna or Warsaw.
