CenTraS

Welcome to CenTraS - CenTraS is a centre for Postgraduate studies including taught programmes with specialised routes at MA or MSc level and a PhD programme for research students. Research is also offered focusing on specialisms such as translation theory, metaphor in translation, theatre translation, specialised translation, audiovisual translation, translation technology, intercultural interaction and interpreting. UCL's CenTraS offers a wide range of high-quality short courses for professional development also.

"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)
