The online English to Spanish Translation Studies Certificate attracts individuals who are proficient in both English and Spanish from a broad range of educational and professional backgrounds. Prospective students include:
Among factors driving the growing demand for translation services are increasing globalization and immigration, as well as federal laws governing the provision of services to all people regardless of race, color or national origin.
In the United States, persons with limited English proficiency are entitled to language assistance in a variety of circumstances and settings. Hospitals and court systems, for instance, must provide limited English proficiency individuals with written and other communication in their language.
Though businesses may not be required to translate written material, effective communication with employees, vendors, customers and others is necessary for operating in the global marketplace as well as in many local and national markets, and can have an enormous impact on profitability.
The federal government does not require translators to be certified or licensed, even though it does require many documents, including marriage certificates, voter registration forms, private contracts and academic records, to be translated. Employers in both the public and private sectors establish their own requirements for hiring qualified translators. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports, “Job prospects [for translators and interpreters] should be best for those who have professional certification.”
The market demand for English to Spanish translation is increasing and is at times greater than the demand for Spanish to English translation, and Adelphi’s online Translation Studies Certificate is one of just a few certificate programs that addresses this need.
Our graduates find opportunities in areas including:
