Translation is the process of converting written texts from one language to another. Professionally-trained translators are able to rewrite texts in a different language, fully capturing the intended meaning, style, and tone of the text, while employing correct grammar and terminology. We offer degrees in French to English translation, English to French translation, and English – Spanish translation.
