Course Description

Using an online delivery method, the online Medical Spanish/English Translation course provides guided practice in the successful completion of professional translation tasks involving texts in the medical domain (e.g., health care forms, health information  texts, health/patient education, legal documents in the health  care setting, etc.).  The course follows a workshop design, accompanied by theoretical components directly related to the tasks at hand. Medical Translation will be particularly useful to practicing professionals with no formal translation education as well as to those interested in pursuing careers in translating, interpreting, and cross-cultural communication. Students interested in registering for this course must first complete and submit a Spanish/English proficiency exam.

Completion of all three translation courses (Business,Legal, and Medical) will earn the student a Certificate of Completion from UA Continuing and Professional Education.

The online translation certificate sequence is an excellent way to prepare for the ATA certification exam (
