Administrative history

The School of Translators and Interpreters changes its name to School of Translation and Interpretation in 1994. The academic unit teaches professional translation as it is currently practiced in government and business in Canada. Courses cover not only translation, but also documentary research, professional writing, terminology and lexicology applications of computers to translation and theoretical aspects of translation. In addition, the School offers graduate programs such as the M.A. in Translation, Graduate Diploma in Conference in Interpretation and Ph. D. in Translation Studies.
