Dear all,

I currently translate from Russian and Spanish into English and have a degree in languages. I would like to specialise in more 'robust' fields such as legal, medical and technical. I'm ideally looking for a course/ book that I could work on during my spare time, and slot in around other priorities.

If you've got any ideas, please get in touch.

Many thanks!

list of online and distance courses for translators Apr 12, 2007

Hi Paul,

I have compiled a list of distance and online courses for translators, maybe you can find something there that suits your needs. There are quite a few for Spanish-English.

Good luck,


P.S. If you find other courses, please let me know so I can update my list.
