Professional Development Courses, Workshops and Certificates

McGill University’s Translation and Written Communication unit invites practicing translators to take the following professional development courses.

Spanish Translation 3 – Thursday; 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. | CCTR 437 781

Students in this advanced-level course in Spanish translation will be able to perfect their skills by translating and localizing materials and texts from French and/or English into Spanish. Assignments will cover selected specialized domains including management, finance, and international and monetary economics.

Translation Studies (English/French/Spanish) – Wednesday; 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. | CCTR 503 771

This introduction to translation studies focuses on the theoretical frameworks used by practicing translators. Students study recognized theorists and translators who have reflected on translation as both product and process. Practical exercises and research papers provide students with the opportunity to discover practical applications of theorists’ approaches to translation.

Computer Assisted Translation – Tuesday; 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. | CCTR 510 761

This course prepares the student for this vital approach to translation through its hands-on introduction to and use of IT applied to translation.

Members of the Ordre des traducteurs, terminologues et interprètes agréés du Québec (OTTIAQ) or sister provincial regulatory bodies as well as suitably qualified individuals may register as Special Students with prior departmental approval.

Special Students take regular credit courses but are not recognized as working towards McGill University’s Graduate Diploma in Translation (GDT). Students in this category are limited to four (4) courses in the GDT. Students interested in applying to the GDT are encouraged to apply to the program before completing four (4) courses. Special students are governed by the same requirements expected of students enrolled in the program.
