Course content

The Master of Translation is a new program offered from 2015 for Mandarin Chinese-English bilinguals. The program will prepare you for a career as a professional translator. Graduates may work in fields such as government, commerce, law, international relations or specialized technical areas. During the program you will develop professional skills translating specialised topics, managing terminology, using translation technologies and negotiating the cultural and intellectual boundaries of the Chinese and English speaking worlds.

An internship is a core component of the program which allows you to develop your professional translation skills in practice within industry. To enrich your studies in translation, you may also undertake elective subjects in the broad fields of culture and communication, and languages and linguistics.

For those interested in research or further study (such as a PhD), an Extended Master of Translation is available. It involves an additional semester of study in which you complete a minor thesis.

The Master of Translation is notable for its access to the intellectual resources of Australia’s No. 1 University and in particular the Asia Institute.
