What do Karl Knausgård, Valeria Luiselli and Clarice Lispector have in common with Jo Nesbø, Georg Trakl and Yoko Tawada? They’ve all been translated into English by graduates from the MA Literary Translation at UEA. On this course you’ll focus exclusively on literary translation, combining translation practice with translation theory. You’ll gain the academic qualification needed for a career as a professional translator, as well as laying the foundation for further academic research.
We have been training literary translators for twenty-five years. Our students have gone on to become award-winning translators, writers, editors and academics.
The course is supported by the British Centre for Literary Translation (BCLT).
