This area seeks to develop students' skills in translation/interpreting in English and another language, and their awareness of practical and theoretical approaches to translation/interpreting and translation/interpreting studies. Students gain a foundation in theories of translation/interpreting and receive training in research on translation/interpreting studies.

All the units cover basic topics related to the theory and practice of both translation and interpreting. The higher level theoretical units focus on more recent research issues in the emerging field of interpreting studies and in familiarising students with current research models and methodologies in translation studies.
