About Conference Interpretation
Conference interpretation enables participants in a multinational meeting to communicate with one another in a seamless fashion, making the language barrier almost imperceptible.
Our conference interpretation master’s program trains you for this career, preparing you to interpret in two modes: consecutive and simultaneous.
About the Translation Field
Anything that is written is a potential translation assignment. Our translation master’s program prepares you to translate treaties, laws, or press releases; user manuals, bidding specifications, or engineering plans; novels, poems, or plays; handwritten letters, medical textbooks, or historical documents; and much more!
The software and localization industry also relies heavily on translators to adapt programs and user manuals to other linguistic and cultural environments.
Translation and Localization Management Program
According to independent market research firm Common Sense Advisory, the global market for outsourced language services and technology will reach US$33.5 billion in 2012. Employers across this rapidly growing industry rely on the Monterey Institute as their go-to source for finding Localization Management talent.
About the Fields of Translation & Interpretation
Our translation and interpretation master’s program prepares you to work as a professional in both the translation and interpretation fields. Although interpretation and translation have much in common, the practice of each profession requires different skill sets.
