The MSc Translating programme in the School of Social Sciences has become a member of the prestigious European Master’s in Translation (EMT) network.

The EMT is run by the European Commission Directorate General for Translation and is a mark of quality awarded to Master’s-level specialist translation programmes across Europe. The EMT quality label will apply to the MSc Translating programme over the period 2019-2024.

EMT members have access to short training placements for MSc Translating students, exchange best practice and cooperate on projects with the aim of innovating their curricular and teaching methods. They also maintain close links with the language industry to stay abreast of the latest developments affecting the translation profession.

Dr Yvonne McLaren, Head of Department of Languages and Intercultural Studies (LINCS), said: “This is really excellent news for LINCS which complements our current work with the European Commission’s Directorate General for Interpretation. Thank you to all colleagues who helped with the application process. ”
