Swedish Translation Studies

Scandinavian Languages

The objective of Swedish Translation Studies, which also covers other Scandinavian languages, is to provide students with the knowledge, skills and competencies required when working as a translator, language reviser or consultant in bilingual and multilingual Finland and in other Nordic countries. The training also prepares students for various linguistic expert positions in public administration, business and industry and international communications. Students will acquire a strong knowledge of languages, culture and translation theory as well as computer skills to support their professional careers, and gain in-depth knowledge in specialisation areas, specialist languages and their translation as well as basic research skills.
