- Please forgive the crass publicity, but this is a new programme that may be
of interest to you or your students. It might also indicate what kind of
sense I personally made of our on-line symposium back in January:
MASTERS AND POSTGRADUATE DIPLOMA IN TECHNICAL TRANSLATION (SPANISH-ENGLISH)
The Universitat Rovira i Virgili in Tarragona, Spain, offers one-year (
Postgraduate Diploma) and two-year (Masters) programmes in Technical
Translation, focusing on Spanish-English.
The programmes specialize in the skills most in demand on the professional
- Use of electronic tools
- Software and website localization
- Technical writing
- Revision techniques
- Translator-client relations
The course is specially designed for non-Spanish students who want to
further their translation skills at the same time as they improve their
knowledge of Spanish and/or Catalan.
All classes are taught in English, with the exception of special classes in
writing techniques in Spanish or Catalan. Language classes are available
alongside the technical translation seminars.
The number of students is strictly limited.
The programmes begin on October 15, 2000.
