Translation studies

Translation studies is an interdiscipline containing elements of social science and the humanities, dealing with the systematic study of the theory, the description and the application of translation, interpreting, or both. Historically, translation studies has long been normative (telling translators how to translate), to the point that discussions of translation that were not normative were generally not considered to be about translation at all.

Graduates of translation studies may pursue their career as a translator or an interpreter. Other potential job positions include project management, proofreading, copy-editing, human resources or marketing.
