Hi flore84,

As 999Tigger suggested, I would also recommend speaking to the department as they will be able to give you the most up to date course structure.

Well there is, Electronic tools for Translators, Translation Process and Procedures, Translating Text and Culture, Managing Translation, Practical Resources for Translators etc. We focus on CAT tools and how variation in different cultures affects how you approach a translation. Identifying textual features of a text. Creating briefs. There is a lot more to it but this is some of it. Hope it helps.

This is the programme specification for last year's offering (however it may have changed, so do ask the department):

https://intranet.royalholloway.ac.uk...ion-latest.pdf

Essentially you do a quarter of your courses in the target language, a quarter in translation modules (either general or linked to the target language) and half you choose among options in the department (which may be a second language). You can take a year abroad in third year (making the course four years long). It can also be combined with other subjects as an equal, major or minor subject.

Might be a different structure at other universities. I'm at London Metropolitan in my second year of BA Translation.
