The Rise of Translation

French Studies in and for the Twenty-first Century

This chapter begins by discussing the history of translation studies programmes British universities. It then examines how the study of French and translation is organised in the UK today. The discussion is based on three surveys of universities accepting applications for entry in 2011, and online summaries of programme and module content. Sources were the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service, the institutions' websites, and specialist websites designed to help applicants select courses of study. It shows that the prevailing view in the UK is that translation and interpreting skills are best learned at postgraduate level, despite the availability of undergraduate degrees devoted to translation.
