Have a look at UNED University Mar 7, 2002

I know the Spanish Distance University (UNED) has some translation courses available. In principle one can register and take exams through any Spanish Embassy if not living in Spain. However, their courses usually start in October ...

UNED\'s website:

Are they good? Mar 8, 2002

Are these courses good enough to spend money and time on them or nobody would really recommend them?

Thank you very much for your help.

Yes, the questions is "Are they any good"? Mar 11, 2002

Thanks for your answers. I will keep on working or, in case I find no good/reliable translation courses, I will follow another courses in order to get a deeper knowledge in my main translation fields.

I think this makes more sense, for the translatins art I have already aquired (but I still have lots to learn, for course), but specialization is also important.

Thanks again.
