Equip yourself to work as a proficient Chinese-English translator and business interpreter on this master's course.

Our MA Translation with Business Interpreting (Chinese) is a highly competitive master's, ideal for those with an interest and aptitude for translation or business interpreting.

You may be working already as a translator and interpreter in mainland China, Taiwan, the UK or elsewhere, or looking to establish yourself with the specialist skills needed to excel in this profession.

The focus of the course is on written translation from English to Chinese and Chinese to English, as well as business interpreting between English and Chinese. In particular, you'll develop translation and interpreting skills suited to working in business and tailored to market needs in mainland China, Taiwan, the UK and other regions.

The course is highly practical so you'll have plenty of opportunities to hone and develop your skills. You will:

  • take part in weekly simulated 'real life' business liaison scenarios to enhance your interpreting and negotiation capabilities
  • gain practical experience of translation management software
  • develop sought-after and important business skills such as editing and proofreading
  • gain useful insights into marketing yourself as a freelance translator and interpreter

Learning and teaching

Our teaching is highly regarded. You will be taught by experienced tutors who have worked as professional translators and/or interpreters; many have interpreted for heads of state and government ministers and work for global organisations such as the EU and UN. As such, they can share a wealth of experience with you and provide useful connections to help with potential job opportunities and internships.

We also regularly arrange visits from representatives of the language services of international organisations, government departments and commercial enterprises, to give you insights into their working practices.

Training Opportunities

Through our extensive network of contacts we try to organise some internal or external training or practical translation, editing or proofreading experience for students with the language services of international organisations, at the university or in the freelance market. These opportunities provide an invaluable insight into the work of professional linguists and are highly valued by employers. However, they are not compulsory or guaranteed.
