Please note: this program is taught entirely in ITALIAN.
Unique in Italy, this program integrates translation skills, interpretation skills and a combination of Chinese- or Spanish-to-English with Chinese- or Spanish-to-Italian in the same curriculum.
The degree helps you learn the techniques and methodologies employed in professional interpretation and specialized literary translation, as well as how to use IT tools for assisted translation. You will tackle the most diverse linguistic-literary and socio-cultural issues with a comparative and intercultural approach and learn to analyze and translate technical, literary, editorial and multimedia texts.
You also learn how to do liaison interpreting, consecutive and chuchotage (whispered) interpreting and company visits, as well as how to manage complex technical professional projects. In addition to providing a wealth of technical skills, these activities aim to deepen your understanding of the intercultural and interlinguistic dynamics in which you will find yourself working after graduation.
• Chinese-English (taught in Italian and Chinese)
