General and Specialized Translation: 2nd Year

You are guided to handle the demands of professional translation and learn how to act independently while being part of a team. You enjoy high-quality specialized translator training while emphasis is given to translations from English into Greek and Greek into English.

You learn to work both individually and as a group to produce high-quality professional translations that meet industry standards. You are also taught methods of analyzing the source-language text and techniques, which will help you deal with the translation difficulties arising from factors such as the readership, the publication and the deadline for delivering your translation.
