|The more interconnected the world becomes, the more it needs translators: people with quick, inquisitive minds and intercultural expertise that enables them to work in diverse professional situations.
To become a translator, you must start with an excellent knowledge of French and English. We’ll help you master the language towards which you translate and establish a thorough command of your source language.
You will choose from one of two streams: if your dominant language is English, you learn to translate from French to English. If your dominant language is French, you translate from English to French. In addition to translation courses, you take language, linguistics and literature courses to sharpen your skills and acquire a high level of proficiency in reading and writing.
Our program is officially recognized by the Canadian Association of Schools of Translation (CAT). A BA obtained upon completion of the Specialization in Translation can lead to certification by the Ordre des traducteurs, terminologues et interprètes agréés du Québec (OTTIAQ).
