The MA in Translation & Localization Management program is organized around three areas of training: translation, technology, and business management.
Localization is the process whereby software, websites, multimedia presentations, documents, or any objects are not only translated, but also adapted to another culture. Employers across this $40 billion and rapidly growing industry rely on the Middlebury Institute as their go-to source for finding localization management talent. To meet this need we have developed three specializations each requiring different levels of language expertise: translation, localization, and management.
All students in the program will learn the software that enables localization, gain the skills to manage complex projects with virtual teams, develop lifelong employability, and get the real-world experience of working in a translation agency for an actual client.
Strengthen business skillset through coursework in finance, accounting, economics and management.
Requires intermediate-high to advanced level proficiency in the language of study.
Students pursuing degrees in Translation, Translation & Interpretation, and Conference Interpretation have the option of adding on a 14-unit Localization Management Specialization.
Our graduates work for private businesses, governments, and nongovernmental organizations around the world as employees or freelance consultants. Learn more about the internships and career paths our graduates have taken.
