The University of Bath
MA Interpreting and Translating Student
The MA Interpreting and Translating offered at the University of Bath is a vocational course grounded in theory and practice, one which seeks to train keen linguists to become professional language service providers. The course offers students an opportunity to acquaint themselves with the theoretical and professional frameworks of both interpreting and translation. Over the course of the year I translated a wide variety of texts - from legal documents to advertisements to French/Spanish literature - and trained in a range of interpreting types: Simultaneous Interpreting, Consecutive Interpreting and Public Service Interpreting.

I worked closely alongside Conor throughout the entirety of the Interpreting and Translating MA at the University of Bath. Conor is reliable, professional and personable, with an impressive work ethic and solid time management skills. His affable personality makes him very easy to work with. In addition, his unique experiences in foreign countries, combined with his solid academic foundation, allow him to provide top-quality language services. I would recommend Conor unreservedly as a translator/interpreter.
