Master of Arts in Translation

The members of Transius teach courses in legal translation, law, economic translation, terminology, advanced translation and revision, all within the FTI’s Master of Arts in Translation, which is part of the EMT network (European Master’s in Translation). Legal translation is a core component of two MA concentrations, both with a professionalising and interdisciplinary orientation: the concentration in “specialised translation”, which also comprises economic translation; and the concentration in “specialised translation – focus on legal translation”, which provides more extensive training in the field. This second concentration was developed by several members of the Centre and is coordinated by its director.
