  Translators' workshops

The translators’ workshops include a wide range of activities aimed at practising spoken English – role plays, mini-speeches, discussions etc. – as well as work on metaphors, register, collocations etc. Specific points of English usage can also be discussed as required.

All the workshops take place at a central location in Edinburgh in the summer or autumn months. Although the city is best known for its International Festival and Fringe Festival in August, there are ample opportunities for visits to cultural events all the year round. The cost of the workshops is EUR 950. The dates for translators' workshops in 2022 will depend on demand. Please register an interest with us, stating your preferences.>p>

What others are saying

"The instructors foster an atmosphere that encourages the creative use of the language. The three workshops I attended have significantly added richness to my interpretations. Highly recommended!"


Bettina, Berlin

"I especially liked the fact that the teachers tailored the workshop to our needs, based on our requests and most frequent mistakes. I can wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone wishing to brush up their English and receive detailed individual feedback. I definitely plan to return!"


Adela, Czech Republic
