The Master of Translation at UWA is the only such postgraduate course to be offered in Western Australia, and provides a strong research-training component, combined with an emphasis on the latest translation technology and practical skills acquisition. It is offered in four language pairs with English: Chinese, French, German and Italian, with plans to extend the offering to respond to demand. This course has been designed by leading translation scholars whose work represents the frontier of translation studies, and has been benchmarked against Masters of Translation Studies offered in world-class universities in the UK, Europe and Asia. All students undertake a translation internship. This can be in Australia, in China or Europe with whom we have placement relationships. The internships ensure a high level of practical training, and provide the opportunity for professional contacts for future employment.
