Short Description

The Department of Foreign Languages, Translation and Interpreting (DFLTI), which is based in Corfu, is the only University department in Greece that offers state-of-the-art studies in Translation and Interpreting (T&I). The undergraduate programme of study is organized in two study cycles:

  1. Translation
  2. Interpreting

and leads to a BA in Trilingual Translation or Interpreting (Greek-English-French or Greek-English-German). Students can also take classes in Turkish, Italian, Spanish, and Albanian languages and cultures. In addition to the study of language, history/literature and culture, students delve into the theory and methodology of translation, linguistics, the basic principles of law, economics, and international relations and work with a variety of textual genres, such as economic, legal, political, technical, scientific-medical and literary genres, including the translation of poetry and plays. They are also introduced to terminology and terminography, subtitling, dubbing and the translation of multimedia texts, translation technology, including machine translation, website localization and project management.
