The Aristotle University of Thessaloniki has a long-standing experience in Translation and Interpreting studies. From 2003, the Joint Postgraduate Studies programme “Conference Interpreting and Translation” of the Faculty of Philosophy, offers a master’s degree in professional Translation, in six language combinations (EN, FR, DE, IT, ES and RU). In 2014, the Master programme was awarded the “European Master’s in Translation” (EMT) quality label, which was also renewed in 2019.
