Ideal if you're already a student of interpreting and translation, or if you're already working as an interpreter and translator. It'll help you to develop your knowledge of medical terminology.
The course covers major areas of medical terminology useful to interpreters and translators. At the end of the course, you'll be able to translate semi-technical medical terminology covered in class, and you'll develop techniques of dealing with more specialised terms. The course uses a number of teaching techniques including teacher and student presentations, group discussions and glossary building, to familiarise you with a variety of medical terminology and of ways to deal with it in interpreting and translation.
There aren't any formal requirements. This course is designed for those who are already a student of interpreting and translation or who are working as an interpreter and translator.
There may be materials you need to help with your studies. You'll either make a one-off payment for these when you enrol, or you'll buy them during the course. Your tutor will talk to you about this at interview or in your first class (if you don't need an interview).
Depending on your course and circumstances, you may be able to get funding to help with materials fees. Please check with us when you come in for interview or enrolment.
You can go on to study the Diploma in Public Service Interpreting and Metropolitan Police Test courses at South Thames College.
