I see there is a very useful section listing the following Organization Types:

All Orgs

Associations

T&I Schools

Gov't Orgs

Orgs Offering Credentials

Orgs Offering Training

I think it would be very useful to have a separate section for Orgs Offering DISTANCE Training

Ta:-)

Maybe I should elaborate:-) I have done 3 training courses as a translator, 2 distance to begin with, and the last, 1 en situ.

1. I would never have gotten to the point of affording the last one if I hadn't managed to get started in translation doing the distance courses (IOL Diploma in ES from IH Barcelona, where I lived, and a Diploma-prep course from Dublin in PT, not available in Barcelona) - they gave me the flexibility of working while studying.

2. Also, like with the PT course, it is sometimes difficult to get training for less common languages, or for languages in countries where that language is not spoken or especially popular.

3. What seems to be most difficult of all is to get specialised training in particular fields. There are a few in situ field-specialist Master's as far as I am aware, but I am on the lookout for specific, shortish, distance courses, focusing on law, business, medicine, etc..

4. Practical translation training lends itself to distance learning, as it can be based on a small amount of theoretical input plus practice translation assignments emailed out and back again for correction.

Online Master in Terminology Aug 25, 2005

OK, I'll start

Here is the link. It is not particularly a translation course, but in my opinion, abig part of technical translator's work is terminology management.
