The amount of text available in electronic format and available on the internet is growing exponentially and much of this information has to be translated or interpreted. As a result, there is a pressing need for a new generation of translators and interpreters who rely less on traditional methods and instead benefit from a range of time- and labour-efficient technological tools. To address the growing demand for such professional translators and interpreters, the proposed European Master’s in Technology for Translation and Interpreting (EM TTI) will produce specialists in translation and interpreting who are up-to-date with the latest applications which support their daily work.
The European Master’s Technology for Translation and Interpreting addresses the need for a new generation of translators and interpreters through a programme of outstanding academic quality, in line with the Erasmus+ ethos of building a stronger workforce with the breadth of skills and perspectives needed to stimulate developments in the field. The offer of scholarships will drive competition for places and ensure candidates of the highest caliber are selected.
A strong consortium of the University of Wolverhampton, UK (the co-ordinator); University of Malaga, Spain; and New Bulgarian University, Bulgaria, embodies the aim to deliver a cohesive, integrated European-wide programme which will be the first of its kind worldwide. Bringing together these four Higher Education institutions, who are known for their seminal contributions in the computational aspects of language study, as well as technology of translation and interpreting, gives the students access to leading academics and best practices across the field. The addition of strong industry associate partners creates a student-centred and market-oriented programme with a vision of delivering educational quality and vocational skills to maximise the students’ career potential. The public and private sector associate partners have been selected from industry, user organisations and academia to complement the quality and integrity of the programme
