Localization Management Specialization

Students pursuing degrees in Translation, Translation & Interpretation, and Conference Interpretation have the option of adding on a 14-unit specialization in Localization Management.

About the Specialization

Since the advent of our Translation and Localization Management (TLM) degree a decade ago, students in our other Translation and Interpretation (T&I) degree programs have become increasingly interested in the localization field. In fact, technological advances in both translation and interpretation have made it increasingly important that our graduates are well-versed in various areas relevant to localization professionals.

This 14-unit specialization in Localization Management allows students in Translation, Translation & Interpretation, and Conference Interpretation to be more competitive in the industry.
