Spanish/English Translation Certificate Wins Outstanding Program Award

The University of Arizona Spanish/English Translation Certificate Program was the recipient of the 2021 University Professional and Continuing Education Association (UPCEA) West Region Outstanding Non-Credit Program Award.

The program was designed and is managed by Dr. Sonia Colina (Regent’s Professor, Department of Spanish and Portuguese, and Director of the National Center for Interpretation at the University of Arizona).

The non-credit Spanish/English Translation Certificate Program helps bilingual speakers turn their language skills into a rewarding career. It also produces trained translation professionals who can provide Spanish/English translation services in medical, legal, and business settings. 

As Dr. Colina says, the UPCEA award affirms that it is possible to offer “high quality academic content and sound pedagogical design in the form of practically-oriented professional courses.”
