Flemish term or phrase: Licentiaat vertaler
Given the different educational contexts in Europe, I was wondering how to translate this into English (English and US-educational system).

MA in Translation Studies/in Translation
Explanation:
is what's most often used, even though I don't always agree with the 'M' part -should in fact be BA+ (or something along that line, if that would exist :)), as an MA usually entails a lot more than what is taught over here.

On the other hand, most BA's are below our level of 'licentiaat'.
And certain MA's are indeed on our 'licentiaat' level or below that - a lot depends on the university you attend.

You should therefore stick to 'MA in Translation Studies/Translation'


Ref.:
"Centre for English Language Studies. MA in Translation Studies. ... The
MA Translation Studies is also available in distance mode. ..."

"... Programs of Study: Russian Translation. For the MA Degree in Russian Translation.
This program is intended for graduate students who are primarily interested in ..."

Thanks. With globalization, a global standard/degree would be more useful.
