The MA Translation at Leiden University offers a unique combination of translation theory, research and practice, preparing you for either a further academic career as a researcher or a professional career in the language industry as a translator, subtitler, terminologist, project manager or language consultant. Thanks to our use of professional translation software and our attention to developments in computer-assisted and machine translation, you will have all the necessary tools in your translator’s toolkit, as well as the ability to use them critically and reflect on their value in a world of increasing globalization and multicultural communication.
The MA Translation is a member of the prestigious European Master’s in Translation Network and offers state-of-the-art training that includes the use of new tools and a strong focus on professional practice. The instructors all have experience in both professional practice and academic research, and their expertise is reflected in the different electives: legal translation, literary translation, medical translation, and multimodal translation (including subtitling). Our programme includes translation practice both from English to Dutch as well as Dutch to English. At the end of your studies, you will earn a qualification that will give you entry to the national register of sworn interpreters and translators.
