Hi everyone,

I'm thinking of doing a distance learning course as part of my professional development and was just wondering if anyone knows of a comprehensive site that lists distance learning university courses for translators/interpreters. I'm particularly interested in courses in Europe.

I already have an MA in Translation & Interpreting and am looking for supplementary courses.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Hi Ana,

I don't know if such a list exists, but I did look into this a little last year because I was interested in doing a course and ended up chosing WLS (based in Ireland) because there was some good feedback about it.

I wouldn't like to recommend it exactly, because I've only just started the course, but they have been very helpful and friendly so far.

Good luck,

I am doing a distance learning course for translating with the WLS in Dublin, they have their own certificate and also prepare you for the IOL translation diploma.

I have been very happy with the course and the results.

Also interested in the same topic Feb 7, 2006


I am very glad that someone asked this question as I am also very interested in it. I come from Macedonia, a country which is not an EU member and my language combination is Macdonian/English. I was always wondering if there are any possibilities to enter into some kind of distance learning programme where my language combination would not be an impediment. I tried to search on the Internet, but without any success, so I am also looking forward to reading the comments on this topic.

some links Feb 7, 2006

Hi Ana,

Try this for UK distance courses -
And this one

But if you ask something like ("distance learning" translation) in Google, you'll get links to relevant courses/universities or courses' lists. You can replace "translation" with any other subject.
