Spanish-English Translation / Traducción ingles-espanõl


Certificates allow you to complete a specific group of university courses (for credit) as either part of your degree studies or separately. Additional details on certificates are available here.

This certificate is designed to meet the growing demand for Spanish/English translators which is one of the by-products of the North-American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and of the increasing globalization of international markets.

The certificate fulfills an essential need in our society by providing training in linguistic, cultural and translation skills for those who wish to pursue a career in translation. It also benefits working translators who wish to seek formal professional training.

The courses in the certificate must be taken in sequence and, therefore, they require a minimum of two academic years to be completed.

Who can take it?

This certificate is open to the following applicants:
  1. current York students, or
  2. new applicants to York who already hold a university degree.

How to apply

  1. If you are a current York student, contact the Department of Hispanic Studies at Glendon College to find out about admissibility requirements and the application process.
  2. If you are a new applicant to York and already have a university degree, you must ensure first that you meet the minimum requirements for admission to the University by applying through the Office of Admissions. You would then also make a separate inquiry to the Department of Hispanic Studies, as noted in item 1 above.

In both cases, you must also successfully complete an entrance exam before beginning the certificate program.
