After completing an undergraduate degree, some students may decide to pursue a master’s degree to gain more in-depth knowledge of a subject. Programs can be classroom-focused or research-focused or offer a combination of both. The length of master’s degree programs varies significantly by program.

What is a Master in Translation? It is a course of study that prepares students who speak two or more languages for careers as translators. A translator converts written documents from one language to another. In this program, learners have the opportunity to learn about language theory, translation terminology and techniques, commercial translation and technical translation. Programs can focus on specific languages, such as Chinese to English, or sectors, such as health and medical translation.

A Master in Translation program is likely to improve students’ written communication skills, as well as their linguistic abilities and project-management talents.

Prospective students should consider the fees for obtaining a Master in Translation before deciding on a program. They can contact individual institutions for a full explanation of program costs. Interested individuals should keep in mind that fees could vary considerably for each program.

Earning a Master in Translation can prepare scholars to translate written words in a variety of settings. Translators are in demand in print media, including newspapers and books. Translators are also required at global sporting events or government summits where multiple languages are spoken. These programs could also prepare individuals for careers as communications officers with multinational corporations. This degree could also help students start their own translation business.

There are many institutions around the world that offer a Master in Translation. Prospective students may be able to select between part-time and full-time course loads and online or local classes.
