Translation and Interpreting Summer Institute
This intensive three-week summer institute, for beginning and mid-career translators and interpreters working in any language pair, offers a unique opportunity to learn about the business and practice of this dynamic and expanding field. The institute takes place in the multicultural hub of New York City, home to the United Nations and industry associations of translators and interpreters that engage in advocacy and standard setting for the profession. The program provides training in the fundamentals of translation and interpreting while offering hands-on exposure to the language service business and its competitive job market, digital technologies, and rapidly evolving translation profession. Included in the three weeks are a guided tour of the UN language services division and excursions to important cultural centers and institutions. The program culminates in a panel discussion, interpreting/translation awards, and student-faculty presentations.
