If so, do come to the Careers in Languages Event at our Little Titchfield site, just five minutes’ walk from Oxford Circus. You will be able to hear short talks by people who work as translators, interpret in Paris or Geneva, subtitle the latest DVDs, manage big translation projects, or revise and edit translations for publication worldwide.

The presenters, all graduates of the MA courses in translation or interpreting at the University of Westminster, will be happy to answer your questions.

Graduates with languages are in great demand, so this is the ideal chance to find out how your interest in languages can start you off on a really exciting career path.
