Training for interpreters and translators Stampa

Continuing vocational training courses

Continuing vocational training is not only a new teaching process but a revolution in education. It is no longer restricted to the academic year but can be extended throughout one's working lifetime.
To respond to this need, the Istituto Carità Politica has prepared various continuing vocational training courses involving a series of cultural initiatives on multicultural subjects, with particular reference to religion and socio-political issues.


Advanced training for interpreters and translators

The ability to translate from and into a language as complex as Italian can only be acquired by a long period of study. This must be made up of language and grammar lessons but also cultural exchanges, debates and talks. This is the only way to acquire the competence to find the right words to interpret a term, sentence or concept correctly.
With this in mind, we decided to involve a fixed number of interpreters and translators in meetings, seminars, international conventions and congresses organised on a regular basis by the Istituto Carità Politica together with the Diplomatic Corps accredited to the Holy See. The intention is to give wide experience in terms of personal training and professional competence. Its benefits are immediately apparent, most notably for the fact that it can help to develop an appropriate diplomatic and religious vocabulary.


Interpreting and translation training placements

Placements are a useful way of reducing the distance between the world of study and the reality of work. They are a way to test ourselves and learn to apply theoretical knowledge in real situations.  Periods of training can be carried out at the Istituto Carità Politica but these will not be on an employer-employee basis and are not remunerative. There is no minimum time limit but the maximum length is 12 months. Students can also rely on special assistance provided by an academic tutor.  Placements are set up on the basis of an agreement between the Istituto Carità Politica and the University, which pays for insurance. However, the initiative can also come from students.
