Translation / Traduction

Translation / Traduction


Small classes (groups of only 25 Anglophone and Francophone students) provide an ideal setting for learning and mastering skills of translation.

Unique in Southern Ontario, our program addresses a significant shortage of English, French and Spanish translators in Canada. Our graduates work for the United Nations, the Government of Canada, law firms, publishing houses and more. They have also developed careers in editing, writing and teaching.

Stay ahead of the curve

Gain experience and earn course credits by participating in an internship with the provincial or federal government, the private sector, or with other organizations. As a Translation student, you’ll forge a strong professional network and will obtain a free membership to the Association of Translators and Interpreters of Ontario with access to all its services, job postings, workshops and networking opportunities.

Unique dans le sud de l’Ontario, notre programme répond à une pénurie importante de traducteurs vers l’anglais, le français et l’espagnol, au Canada. Nos diplômés travaillent pour l’ONU, le gouvernement du Canada, des cabinets juridiques, des maisons d’édition et ailleurs ; ils font aussi carrière dans la rédaction et l’enseignement. 

Prenez une longueur d’avance

Acquerrez une expérience pratique et obtenez des crédits en participant à un stage auprès du gouvernement fédéral ou provincial, d’entreprises du secteur privé ou d’autres organisations. Vous établirez un solide réseau de contacts professionnels, et vous pourrez obtenir gratuitement votre adhésion à l’Association des traducteurs et interprètes de l’Ontario et aurez ainsi accès à tous les services, offres d’emplois, ateliers et activités de réseautage que l’Association met à la disposition de ses membres.
