MA in Multilingual Information Management

This programme is a digital media programme jointly taught by the School of Languages and Cultures and the Information School.

Global businesses are in great need of communicators who can:

  • design websites and localise user interfaces;
  • evaluate search engines;
  • manage localisation projects to match the needs of international audiences and users of digital media;
  • argue for the importance of language and cultural difference in the management of digital information.

The combination of technological, intercultural and linguistic skills will allow you to analyse, address and solve complex real-world IT problems in international communication.

Multilingual Information Management provides a strong career path for anyone interested in working in the field of digital communication in an intercultural environment.

The MA in Multilingual Information Management is one of our five Translation and Intercultural Communication programmes. Designed for those who wish to work managing large amounts of multilingual data and in multilingual teams, it covers theory and practice of all parts in the information management process and of intercultural communication, whilst also giving you plenty of opportunities to develop practical skills in website design and software localisation using industry-standard software. At the same time, you can shape the programme to suit your personal career needs and interests, choosing between various information, language, management and other subject options.

We are one of the first UK universities to offer this Masters programme and our graduates are highly employable in any type of industry involving the global handling of information and communication, such as web design, website and software localisation and human resources.
