The Graduate Certificate in Arts in Japanese Translation is a one year part-time program offering a solid grounding in translation to students wishing to specialise in translation rather than interpreting. You'll study translation into your native language (English or Japanese) only. Students who are not native speakers of either Japanese or English should study translation into their stronger language.
Offering intensive training in translation, this postgraduate coursework program is one of just two in Australia to be listed on the International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC) Schools and Programmes Directory, which only features programs that meet its training criteria.
The courses within your eight-unit Graduate Certificate program cover Advanced Textual Skills, Applied and Advanced Translation, and the Theory of Translation. Materials in your translation classes cover a range of subjects, including highly specialised areas of legal and medical translation.
