Languages CPD

multicolour languages summer school

Heriot-Watt University’s Languages and Intercultural Studies (LINCS) department offers a range of one-day continuing professional development (CPD) short courses (online and in-person) aimed at language professionals as well as new graduates looking to gain further skills.

Our courses include translation, interpreting, and translation technologies at both beginner and advanced levels.  We also run intercultural communication courses aimed at professionals working in multicultural and multilingual contexts.  

Our CPD courses are carefully designed and delivered by a team of professionals. They integrate current research in translation, interpreting, and pedagogy, using a range of innovative platforms. Participants will receive targeted instructor feedback and be supported in developing their self-assessment skills.

Build on existing skills and broaden your professional network in a vibrant multilingual and multicultural environment.    

We can offer additional courses if there is sufficient demand. For all enquiries, please email:
