More details, please, re short courses for training interpreters Feb 16, 2009

Greetings... ahalan wa sahalan...

Please furnish some additional details about what type of training you seek and where you would want to attend such a program?

Most programs offered by universities and institutes [especially several institutions in the US and UK] for qualifying and certifying a person as a professional, full-time interpreter or translator are not short-term programs, but they usually involve 1-2 + years of full-time classroom study, along with practicum/internship periods.

Short-term training for interpreters is usually for supplemental training [such as become familiar with new subjects, technologies, or industries] or for periodic training required for renewing one's professional certification.

As I recall, UAE University in Al-Ain, Abu Dhabi offers a bachelor's degree in translating and interpreting in such language pairs as Arabic English [and a few other languages].

The emirates-wide HCT system and Zayed University might offer long-term (initial qualification) and short-term (refresher/enhancement/supplemental) programs.

King Saud University and Imam Mohamed bin Saud Islamic University, both in Riyadh, do offer bachelor's degree programs.

King Abdulaziz University in Jeddah also has similar programs, so I have heard when I was in the kingdom during 2006-2007.

Hope this helps.

Khair, in shaa' Allah.
