Hi everybody. I would like to attend a course in Great Britain or Ireland to improve my English for my job.

I have been mainly a teacher, but I started working as a translator and interpreters 3 years ago and I like this job very much!!

I would like to make it my main job because teaching is becoming quite boring to me...but that is another question...

Has anybody attended special courses?

thank u in advance. Elena

summer courses for translators and interpreters Apr 17, 2008

Hi Elena,

I attended the University of East Anglia's English and translation summer school in 2003. I quite liked the course, they offered advanced English, creative writing, British culture, translation theory and practical translation courses. The English teachers were just great and you are assigned a tutor for practical translation. They also organised cultural visits to London, Cambridge, Sandringham as well as museum visits, cinema evenings, etc.

The City University in London also offers short courses in the summer. They have English to Italian media translation for example.

Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh has an intensive advanced English course with translation and interpreting courses.

London Metropolitain University has some interpreting courses.

There is also the translation research summer school, held in Manchester this year, in case you are interested in doing research.

Best regards,
Christine

You can search for German language summer courses on the DAAD website.

Courses Jun 14, 2009

Hello, I'm starting this topic again. Anyway, I'm from Croatia, I teach English at school and I am also a translator (English-Croatian and vice versa). I'm looking for a summer course somewhere in Britain, just to improve my language skills.

Can you recommend some courses that you attended and that were useful to you?

Thank you!

Dear colleagues,

I am still looking for an adequate refreshing course GERENG, conference interpreting in UK or US. Cambridge has been strongly recommended... maybe someone has other options.

Anything in Spain for Spanish > English translators? Dec 18, 2012

Does anyone know of any summer courses in Spain for Spanish > English translators? I've seen one at Tandem, but it has a large focus on sworn translation and runs at an inconvenient time for me. All the others I've come across are for English > Spanish. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Any Turkish courses? Jun 8, 2013

Hi everybody!
I am studying Turkish as I would like to add it to my combination. Do you know if there is any Turkish course for interpreters? I already have a MA in Conference Interpreting and I think that applying again to a university would be a waste of time...

Thanks

Caterina
