|Program Description:||McGill University's Senate has approved a new program in Spanish translation, to be offered starting in September 2006.
Known for the thoroughness, flexibility and practicality of its current undergraduate and graduate level programs in English-French/French-English translation, McGill's Department of Translation Studies has added three new options to the undergraduate certificate program in translation. These will prepare apprentice translators to work from English and/or French into Spanish and from Spanish into both English and French. This initiative represents a unique opportunity in the Montreal area, already known as the epicentre of translation in Canada.
The new program offering was developed in response to the increasing use of Spanish as a third language in Quebec and the rest of Canada and to the growing demand for competent translators capable of translating into and from Spanish.
This program is a first for McGill and draws on three distinct strengths: McGill's resolve to support its students in their ability to access professional status as translators in Quebec, McGill's proven track record in establishing a direct link between translation studies and a clear career path, and McGill's experience in providing high-quality, hands-on education as a service to the greater community.
Students wishing to apply for admission to this new program must submit their applications by June 1 and sit an entrance examination. An information evening presenting the program requirements and curriculum will take place on May 8 at 688 Sherbrooke St. West, Room 1041, at 6:00 pm.
