A master’s degree is an academic degree that can be pursued after completing an undergraduate degree. A Master in Translation is a good choice for those who are bilingual and want to make a career out of it.

What is a Master in Translation? This course of study is designed to prepare proficient bilingual and multilingual students to work as translators. Students build their technical, linguistic, and professional skills, and gain experience through internships. Translation programs vary, but most will combine classroom teaching and laboratory demonstration to build versatile communication skills. Students will learn computer applications, terminology, project management skills, and how to provide effective and accurate translations.

There are a number of benefits for those with a Master in Translation. It exposes students to a variety of cultures and people, and they are able to negotiate and create pathways of meaning between conflicting sides. Students learn how to engage politically, ethically, and creatively with different people.

As a master’s degree in translation is geared towards students from many countries, there are multiple programs offered around the world. The duration of the specific programs, as well as the location, results in various costs. To find out exactly how much your school costs, get in touch with the admission department directly.

Graduates are proficient translators and interpreters, and there is a high demand for them in many different fields. Depending on your interests, a degree can lead to a career in law, politics, finances, government, management, literacy, business, or medicine.

For those with busy lives, thinking about earning a master’s degree may seem overwhelming. However, many schools now offer the ability to take the majority of classes online. This flexibility allows many more students to earn their degree on their own time schedule.
