This Master’s degree has been a member of the EMT - European Master's in Translation - see http://ec.europa.eu/dgs/translation/programmes/emt/network/index_en.htm since 2009 and, after re-evaluation, was re-admitted to the Network in 2014 for a period of 5 years. The Network consists of 64 Master’s programmes offered by European universities with which we maintain close links and with whom we have ERASMUS agreements for student and teacher mobility.
Membership of the EMT Network means that our students have preferential access to traineeships with European institutions, and that we are given priority in relation to the DGT’s Visiting Translators Scheme. The course also belonged to the ERASMUS Academic Network OPTIMALE - (Optimising Professional Translator Training in a Multilingual Europe) with 70 partners in 32 European countries (including 27 in the European Union), see http://www.translator-training.eu/optimale/index.php
This Master’s degree was planned as a two-year professional course in accordance with the guidelines proposed by the Bologna Process. The curriculum takes into account the European Norm EN-15038: European Quality Standard for Translation Services of May 2006 and is the result of the experience accumulated over 20 years of teaching Translation within the first degrees in Modern Languages and master’s degrees in Translation with the associated internships.
This Master’s degree has also benefitted from the contact maintained with potential employers during and after the internships, as well as from feedback from our graduates and the world of Professional translation, both in the structure of the curriculum and in the content of the subjects taught.
The languages at present included in the curriculum are Portuguese, English, French, German and Spanish, and since 2012-3 it has been possible to study Chinese, Italian, Japanese, and Russian, providing there are enough students interested.
