Master of Arts in Translation Science and Technology

Practice-oriented translator training

Our innovative and admission-free Master's programme in Translation Science and Technology is designed to align with the latest developments in language digitalization and the resulting applications in language processing through Artificial Intelligence. Current requirements in professional practice also play a significant role in the curriculum. The programme focuses on the most recent findings and methods in language technology and empirical research. You will be equipped for modern and future-oriented processes in multilingual communication and for research content and methods in applied language and translation studies.

Good to know: The ideal route to a Master's degree is via our BA Language Science course, but it is also possible with other qualifying Bachelor's degrees. The Master's course can also be completed in just one B language (English). Furthermore, from the winter semester 2024/25, the Master's course can also be completed as a double degree in Italy or Spain (in German).


Master's degree program "Translation Science and Technology" is part of the EU network EMT

In June 2024, the Master's degree program "Translation Science and Technology" was accepted into the renowned EU network European Master's in Translation (EMT). Membership of the EMT network is a quality mark for Master's degree programs in the field of translation, as the European Commission's Directorate-General for Translation only awards this label to university programs that meet jointly agreed professional standards and market requirements. The inclusion of the Master's in Translation Science and Technology in the EU EMT network is therefore proof that this Master's program keeps pace with the times and reflects current technological developments in the field of translation in a timely manner. As an EMT member, the Master's program will cooperate closely with the Directorate-General for Translation. This includes, among other things, the possibility for students to complete short-term internships at this institution.
