NUI Galway offer Diploma in Translation in Kerry Gaeltacht

Monday, 27 August 2007

Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta Gaeilge, National University of Ireland, Galway is offering a part-time diploma in translation studies this forthcoming academic year. The course will be held from mid September in the Corca Dhuibhne Gaeltacht, An Daingean, Co. Kerry.

This is a two-year, part-time course and will take place one night a week. The course is suited to those with fluent Irish and English, both written and spoken, and is aimed at people who wish to pursue a career in the field of translation or who wish to perfect their accuracy in written Irish.

Participants will also get an insight into the translation business, as well as the software and electronic tools available to the Irish language translator. The course is designed to give practical experience of translating the types of texts most commonly translated into Irish.

Eoin Ó Droighneáin, Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta, said: "Due to the recent expansion of translation in Ireland as a field of education, business and employment, there is an onus on professional translators to ensure their work reaches a very high standard. Achieving a recognised qualification and acquiring sound translation skills is now, therefore, more important than ever".

Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta Gaeilge, NUI Galway is also offering a postgraduate course – Dioplóma Iarchéime / M.A. i Léann an Aistriúcháin (Postgraduate Diploma / M.A. in Translation Studies). This is a fulltime course held over one year for the postgraduate diploma, and two years for the M.A.

Applications are now being accepted for both courses.
