Language Education

Ethics Practices Reinforced Through MATI Courses

June 04, 2015

Olivet School of Language Education, OSLE, students majoring in Master Art of Translation & Interpretation (MATI) currently received more attention on Ethics Practices.

OSLE provided courses this quarter on Ethics Practice, which reinforces each student's awareness of ethics and enhanced their capability towards training to be professional interpreters.

Students learn ethical considerations and how to maintain confidentiality among pressured situations. These challenges are present in all interpreter related work.

"All interpreters and translators might have experienced some ethical dilemmas in their interpretation and translation work. This course has given me a new perspective on ethics," said OSLE student Amanda Zhang.

"Ethics are more than cautionary red flags that you should pay attention to. They are more like features and clashes of different cultures that sometimes involve with laws and traditions," she added.

OSLE is striving to provide outstanding courses to equip students in meeting modern challenges in the fast growing field of translation and interpretation.
