Translation

This is a distance-learning master's programme for aspiring or practising translators. It is suitable for graduates in any discipline offering one or two of the following languages in addition to English: Czech, French, German, Italian, Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese, Russian or Spanish. The MA combines language-specific practice with training in translation theory and translation technologies. You will study interactively, as part of an online group led by a tutor. The programme is taught entirely online and you are not required to come to campus. Our library has an excellent stock of e-books and e-journals on translation. However, you are just as much a member of the University as any other student and we are delighted to welcome you to Bristol if you visit. We organise a programme of talks and seminars each year. Online group discussion means that we have a very lively and supportive learning community. If you need help on a one-to-one basis, tutors can support you in a number of different ways, for example using Skype, phone or email. The University has close links with professional associations and helps students to take advantage of internships in the EU and the UK where possible. We have corporate membership of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI) and institutional membership of the American Translators' Association (ATA). We are on the ATA's list of approved providers of translator training.
