This intensive one-week course aims to foster an in-depth knowledge of the work translators and interpreters do in the fields of national and global security. The course comprises theoretical lectures (15 hrs) in the morning that cover different aspects of crime, security and diplomacy, and afternoon sessions (20 hrs) that focus on hands-on practice of translation and interpreting skills employed in settings that cover national and global security. The activities include advanced consecutive interpreting, simultaneous and chuchotage interpreting, transcription and legal translation.
Participants will acquire sophisticated contextual knowledge in crime, security and diplomacy, as well as advanced interpreting and translating skills required when working in these settings. This course will prepare participants for the real-life challenges they encounter when working in security and diplomacy environments. The theoretical components will be delivered through lectures, debates, Q&A sessions and group discussions; the practical sessions will focus on the refinement and acquisition of advanced translating and interpreting techniques.
Experienced translators and interpreters, or those who want to specialise their translating and interpreting practice in the areas of crime, security and diplomacy.
