The MA in Translation Studies (MATS) delivered by TII is designed to train highly skilled translators in the areas of business and commerce, science and technology, literary translation, legal and medical translation, and translation of media texts, as well as translation for international organizations.
The acquisition of practical translation competence is complemented by advanced training in the use of translation technology and work placement experience. A theoretical component encourages sophisticated intellectual inquiry, thus equipping students with a sound foundation for professional work and doctoral study in the field of translation studies.
In May 2020, validation for the MATS program was officially renewed by the Faculty of Translation and Interpreting (FTI) of the University of Geneva.
Students are introduced to professional experience through an internship at TII’s Translation and Training Center or with external partners, such as companies or ministries. Further insights are provided by professional translators’ contribution to practical courses.
The program is benchmarked against the highest international standards.
