The Translation and Training Center (TTC) aims at promoting community development and building capacity in Qatar and the region through continuing education (professional development) opportunities in translation and interpreting.

TTC provides practicing translators, interpreters and communication specialists with opportunities to continue their professional development through specialized workshops that aim to enhance and expand skill sets and provide orientation in key technological innovations and new methodologies in the field of translation and interpreting. The center offers both regular workshops and tailored workshops for the community throughout the academic year.

The annual cycle for training workshops usually starts in September and ends in the following April. In the 2019-2020 cycle, we will be offering 15 workshops.

  • The length of each workshop is 12 hours extended over 4 days, Sunday to Wednesday (4-7pm).
  • If a workshop is scheduled during the holy month of Ramadan, a different time will be set. 
  • Participants who successfully complete the entire training module are awarded with a certificate of completion.

All workshops are conducted in English and Arabic, with the exception of ‘Business Arabic Writing’ and ‘Accessible Hospitality and Events.’
