MA in Translation Studies, Class of 2008/09
PhD in Translation Studies and Applied Linguistics
I was attracted to the MA in Translation Studies at Sheffield as I had practical experience in the field of translation but had never gained a formal qualification. I was also impressed by Sheffield's excellent reputation for Dutch, one of my main translation languages. The varied and very relevant choice of modules on the MA programme provided me with the opportunity to explore from a theoretical perspective many of the translation issues I had previously dealt with only intuitively. This inspired me to take up doctoral research into translation studies and applied linguistics with a particular focus on multilingual translational settings.
