Program Overview

Program Description:
Professional, hands-on translation experience and intensive Russian lessons! A unique program to jump-start your career as a translator.

Translation Abroad is a practical academic program offering intensive Russian lessons and professional, hands-on translation experience. Despite advances in electronic translation technology, there is increasing need for the accuracy and readability that only human translation can deliver. With the world's exponentially increasing information flows, the growing globalization of business, and more frequent government interactions, there is demand for not only translated literature, but also for technical, legal, and marketing documents. Each of these fields are, in fact, developing into specialized trades because of the particular skill sets they require. Translation Abroad is designed to give students the skills and experience they need. With individualized Russian lessons, cultural immersion, and hands-on experience translating political, legal, technical, and/or marketing material for businesses, museums, or NGOs, students will have experience translating in the office and translating independently. Tired of folks asking you: "What are you going to do with that degree?" Now you can tell them.

Includes tuition for study as outlined, dormitory accommodation, visa and registration, pre-departure materials, local orientation, health and accident insurance, cultural program, round-trip airport transfers, mobile telephone with initial sim card, and SRAS in-country support.
Setting Description:
A bustling and multicultural city, Moscow is the ideal setting for a focused study of not only Russia, but also of the relationship between this educated and resource-rich country and the rest of the world.
Cost:
See the SRAS website for the most up-to-date information.
