Welcome to the Centre for Translation and Interpretation; one of its kind in terms of training and skills development. Students enrolled in this Centre pursue either a Master of Arts degree in Translation or a Master of Arts degree in Interpretation. These training programmes give our graduates cutting edge skills to navigate the global market in conference interpreting and translation.

We collaborate with the United Nations, the European Union, the University of Geneva and five other universities in Africa namely University of Buea, Cameroon, University of Ghana,  Legon, Pedagogical University of Maputo, Mozambique and Ain Shams University, Egypt.

These collaborations include pedagogical and technical assistance, staff and student mobility and funding. In February 2013, the Centre launched a virtual platform linking it to the University of Geneva. Through this platform, students of interpreting get direct tutorials from expert trainers and buddy study groups with students from the University of Geneva.

The Centre has highly qualified and committed staff drawn from specialized colleagues from other departments of the University as well as highly specialized practitioners of interpreting and translation from the United Nations, the European Union and the University of Geneva.

Director, Centre for Translation & Interpretation
