For translators already working in the field or adults interested in translating, we offer continuing education programmes in translation. The department's main areas of research are related to translation as a cultural transfer, e.g. translation of national and cultural images, the role of translation in journalism, translation policy, translation sociology, as well as terminology work.

More information regarding studies, continuing education programmes and research projects is available on the department's Estonian homepage.
