TRANSLATION AND INTERPRETING at LONDON METROPOLITAN UNIVERSITY

  1. Context

London Metropolitan University is one of the foremost providers of undergraduate, postgraduate, professional and vocational education and training in Britain.  Our courses are planned in consultation with employers and examining bodies in commerce, the financial services industries and the legal profession.  The end result is courses that are of direct relevance to their field and of high quality.

London Metropolitan University is an exempt charity and a company limited by guarantee and incorporated under the Companies Acts (no. 974438).  The University is governed by its Memorandum and Articles of Association, which set out its objects as a higher education institution.

The University is responsible to the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) for the proper stewardship of public funds through compliance with a financial memorandum, which makes it a condition of grant that an institution ensures that it has a sound system of financial management.

Since 2002 we have received excellent review from the Government’s Quality Assurance Agency, and 16 of our subjects are ranked as either ‘excellent’ or ‘broad confidence’.  In 2011 London Met was awarded the highest accolade from the government’s Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). More than two thirds of our research was judged to be ‘internationally recognised’, ‘internationally excellent’ or ‘world leading’ by the most recent Research Assessment Exercise. We are one of the first UK universities to achieve recognition in the USA, and approved by the European Universities Association.  This kind of recognition is increasingly important in a world in which graduates will often expect to spend some of their future career outside the UK, or working for international organisations.

  1. Interpreting and Translation Courses

London Metropolitan University has had an extensive programme teaching Interpreting and Translation for over 10 years.  Academic staff and professional trainers have accumulated significant experience in running three levels of courses:

  • Undergraduate: BA Translation

http://www.londonmet.ac.uk/courses/undergraduate/2015/translation—ba-hons/

  • Postgraduate courses:

 

MA Conference Interpreting

MA Translation

The Interpreting and Translation Section has significant experience in managing various short and long-term projects related to the provision of consultancy and tailor made training. The Section has designed and delivered individual and group training, tailored to the changing needs of various clients and offering flexible delivery and high quality of training.  Recent and current clients include UN, UNDP, Moscow State University, European Parliament, Institute of Translation and Interpreting, Government of Iraq, Foreign & Commonwealth Office, Ministry of Defence, London Metropolitan Police, oil and gas companies in Kazakhstan among other private and public organisations.

We offer programmes which have unique features and we specialise in public, diplomatic, defence, political, legal and other non-literary areas.  We are committed to providing the best opportunities for participants to develop their professional skills further.  We work closely with the Institute of Translation and Interpreting and the Chartered Institute of Linguists as well as numerous EU institutions.

The majority of staff in Interpreting and Translation are active researchers and their research interests support the teaching on the courses. These interests are in the areas of translation and cultural history, translation and politics, translation and discourse analysis, translation and gender, localisation and subtitling. Staff regularly attend and contribute to conferences in comparative studies and translation studies and have organised conferences; for example, a conference on Aspects of Specialised Translation which was held at London Metropolitan University in July 2008 to mark 10 years of the MA Translation programme and in 2013 an international conference will be organised to commemorate 10 years of the BA programme.

We also provide teaching services as part of our contracts with national and international organisations.  Among the most recent examples, we developed a course for Lithuanian interpreters working for the European Parliament in August 2008, a course for translators of the Board of Supreme Auditors of Iraq sponsored by the United Nations in 2009/10.  We were successful in winning the bid for training Iraqi translators in competition with many universities in the UK, Australia and other countries.

We provide consultancy services in the field of translation and interpreting to various organisations in the UK and overseas, e.g. we currently provide assistance to Macedonia, Russia, China and Uzbekistan in setting up new programmes in the field.  In 2007/08 we provided assistance to Praxis, a charity organisation which helps displaced people with advice and support, housing, medical assistance, etc.  In collaboration with colleagues in Praxis and other colleagues in community services we have developed selection criteria for assessment of interpreters.  We also helped them during the assessment process.

We make regular presentations at various meetings organised by the Institute of Translation and Interpreting and contribute to the work of the Chartered Institute of Linguists (IOL) as examiners or moderators in IOL Diploma in Translation.
