About this course

This is a professional program providing training for students with very high levels of competence in the Japanese and English languages as translators and conference interpreters. It covers four broad, interlinked areas of study: theoretical and practical training in interpreting techniques; theoretical and practical training in translation techniques; training in ancillary skills such as public speaking and job-specific research; and training in professional areas such as ethics and business skills. This program is one of only two in the world, and the only program in the southern hemisphere, ranked by the Swiss-based International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC) Survey of Conference Interpreter Training Courses as meeting all or most AIIC criteria.
