Translation

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Translation students learn how to communicate the meaning of words, text or copy written in one language into one or more others. A key difference between translation and interpretation is that translation is specific to written materials, while interpretation deals with speech.
