The Department of Applied Linguistics and Translation Studies at the University of Miskolc offers two courses in the area of translation.
Master of Arts in Translation and Interpreting
This is a four-semester course (full-time/part-time) that concentrates on Hungarian-English and Hungarian-German translation, while also offering an introduction to interpreting. Applicants must have C1 level in either English or German and at least B2 knowledge of the other language. The course provides a theoretical background as well as plenty of practice in translating in different genres and topic areas, including texts related to economics, often with native-speaking teachers. Computer-aided translation (CAT) and other resources are also introduced. Students conclude their studies with a thesis on some aspect of translation, relating theory to practical examples.
Post-graduate specialised course in Translation for Economics and the Social Sciences
This two-semester part-time course is intended for those who already have a degree in any other subject, strong language skills, and an interest in translation. Classes are held on Friday afternoons and on Saturdays. This course attracts a wide variety of participants in terms of profession, background, age, and translation experience. The coursework is focused on practical application of general translation principles and extensive practice in one language pair: the possibilities are English-Hungarian, German-Hungarian, Russian-Hungarian, and Chinese-Hungarian (the first of its type in Hungary). Native-speaking teachers play an important role in the course, and an introduction to computer-aided translation is included. The thesis is a translation of two specialized texts (one in Hungarian, one in the other language) in a thematic area and commentary upon various translation issues encountered during the translation.
