Explanation:
Naturalmente gia' sai che non esiste un corrispondente esatto negli altri sistemi scolastici. La traduzione dipende molto dalla lingua di arrivo (EN USA o UK), e dal tipo di testo che stai traducendo. In linee molto generali credo si possa tranquillamente tradurre con "Specialization Course in Translation and Interpreting" at SIIT from ... to.... In fondo tecnicamente non e' ne' un Master ne' una laurea, bensi' solo un corso di specializzazione. Spero di averti aiutata.

Institute forTranslation and Interpreting Studies


Explanation:
It is not a high school, it is more comparable to a BA (3 years after High School) in translation and interpreting. Thus, the best translation would be an explanatory one, such as Institute for Translation and Interpreting Studies (you might add a translator note, or BA in parentheses).

High School for Interpreters and Translators


Explanation:
In my opinion this has nothing to do with university studies because in Italy anything which has to do with "scuola superiore" is connected with education up to the age of 18. Therefore it is definitely a High School.

School of Translation and Interpretation


Explanation:
Visitandone il sito, ci si rende conto che e' equiparabile ad un primo livello di Laurea (Diploma; B.A.). Non so se Institute rende l'idea che venga rilasciato un diploma. Negli Stati Uniti ci sono le School of this and that, e sono "facolta'" nel senso universitario.

Advanced School for Interpreters and Translators


Explanation:
High School dà l'idea di una scuola media superiore, mentre questo è un corso universitario o parauniversitario.

Io ho fatto questa scuola e da noi si traduceva così, cioè advanced school.

Spero di essere d'aiuto,
Buon lavoro!

Advanced School for Interpreters and Translators


Explanation:
Patata is right. This school has nothing to do with high school, but it also would not be equivalent to a Bachelor's Degree. A high school graduate or also college graduates, (especially language graduates who wish to further specialize in translation studies), may apply for admission to this school. It lasts 2 years for those wishing to obtain a certificate in translation, and 3 years for those wishing to recieve a diploma in interpreting as well.
