Why study translation?

Many people think that if you know a foreign language, you can automatically be a great translator. However, though you may have a natural ability for it, a postgraduate degree in translation is really an industry standard now. Why? Not only does it give you a formal qualification which employers are looking for, but it also gives you sound training in areas such as: translation theory, CAT tools (computer-assisted translation), research techniques, linguistic problem solving and written communication.

Consequently, if you seek a career as a translator without a postgraduate qualification, you will find yourself at a significant disadvantage, both in terms of being under-qualified on paper and under-trained in practice. If you’re thinking about further study, there are a variety of options open to you. From Masters degrees to Postgraduate Diplomas; from full-time study to distance learning.
