The association was created in 1995 in order to give students the opportunity to work on genuine translation projects and to get a closer insight into the professional world. It is fully integrated into the Master’s degree program.

Our program includes intensive practice of professional translation, including the translation of documents in the technical, financial, legal and marketing fields; strengthening of general knowledge of a number of professional fields (science and technology, law), theoretical and practical terminology and mastery of the latest computing tools.

This Master has been awarded the European Master in Translation trademark (EMT) by the expert committee of the Directorate-General for Translation (DG Translation) in Brussels.
