During the first two semesters students will learn how to translate terminology from those fields. Starting from the second year, students will participate in translation workshops where they incorporate the knowledge gained in the previous year. They will also be introduced to the linguistic and cultural aspects of translation and interpreting, as well as intercultural communication. In the fourth semester, students will get familiar with liaison interpreting and will continue practising it during the next semesters. They will gain practical knowlegde during translation workshops where they deal with texts on tourism, press and the media, science and technology, business and law. Finally, students will be introduced to the theoretical fundamentals of audiovisual translation.

Classes will be conducted in English and Polish by experienced interpreters and translators.
