In the globalized world, competent
translators are needed in almost every sector including media, education,
business, logistics, tourism, publishing, law, et cetera. Particularly, in the
Turkish import-export companies, the demand for competent interpreters with a
high command of English has mounted in the recent years. The mission of the
program is educating translators who have developed language awareness; perceive translation as an intercultural communication rather than just a language-level activity; have a brilliant command of Turkish, English and have comprehensive knowledge of the cultures of these two languages; have gained experience in written and oral translation by learning field information and terms of different disciplines in addition to acquiring knowledge of translation techniques, practices and theories; can translate into a foreign language other than English.
