CenTraS offers high quality translation and accessibility services across different media and languages through Translation and Media Accessibility Services (TraMAS).

"Small-group language-specific sessions are particularly useful. Besides, many professional seminars are hosted at UCL throughout the academic year. This semi-professional approach is the cornerstone of CenTraS’s enviable reputation in translator training. Last but not least, a major advantage is 24/7 free access to a fully-equipped in-campus dry-lab, including CAT tools and highly specialised software." (Alejandro Bolaños García-Escribano, Specialised Translation MSc (Audiovisual) 2015/16)
