I have finished my MA degree in translation studies and I have recently received the national scholarship of my country to pursue my PhD degree, by research, in Translation studies (Arabic-English) in the UK. However, I cannot reach a decision whether to join Leeds or Salford. I would really be very grateful if anyone can update me about their reputation in the field of translation and if anyone can tell me about his/her own experience. Many thanks for any advice you might be able give me.

For what it's worth... I chose Salford for my BA back in the mid-1980s. I was interested in a practical rather than theoretical approach to language and translation, but your priorities as a PhD student may be different.
