M1 & M2 in LLCER – Specialization in English and American Studies : Literary Translation

The Master’s in Literary Translation aims to produce translators for French-speaking markets. In addition to the practical and theoretical training aspects, the program has a mentorship program for second year students and prepares them to enter the publishing sector, which has a number of partnerships with our University.

Over the two years, students will participate in a variety of literary translation events and festivals such as VO/VF, the Arles translation convention held in November, Printemps de la Traduction, the Montreuil Children’s Book Fair, among others. Students will be able to attend conferences and meet translators, publishers, editors, collection managers, booksellers, lawyers specialized in intellectual property, and more.

Regular attendance and active participation are required so students can get the most out of the program. It is imperative that students have excellent command of the word processing tools often used in publishing (Pack Office, etc.) as these are some of the most practical aspects of translation.
