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bidding specifications, or engineering plans; novels, poems, or plays; handwritten letters, medical textbooks, or historical documents; and much more!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.
