Course overview


Our Translator Training programme offers three types of distance learning course in translation. Whichever course you choose, our tutors will give you tailored feedback, explaining in detail the merits, as well as any shortcomings, of your regular translation assignments. We never use standardised model answers, your work will be assessed individually and measured against the quality criteria used in a professional context and in the DipTrans exam. Our one-to-one tutorial system gives you the guidance you need to help you develop a good understanding of professional translation as well as encouraging an independent approach to learning.
