Study Abroad: Program in Moscow on Translation

Deadline: March 15, 2013

Dates: June 14 - July 14, 2013
Site: http://www.sras.org/tiss

The School of Russian and Asian Studies (SRAS) is launching a new Moscow-based summer seminar in translation and interpretation. SRAS's Translation & Interpretation Summer Seminar will include four intensive weeks of training in advanced Russian and translation and interpretation techniques. It will cover practical aspects of starting and managing a career. Students can also add an optional month-long translation internship. This program is hosted by The Russian Fellowship in cooperation with The Russian Translation Company, The School of Russian and Asian Studies, and Moscow State University. The Russian Fellowship was started by Mr Pavel Palazhchenko, who was and remains an interpreter to Mikhail Gorbachev. Students will gain practical experience, in part, by interpreting for high-level speakers invited to speak to the group in Russian on issues of political, diplomatic, military, and/or cultural significance.
