INDIANAPOLIS -

IUPUI says it will offer a new certificate program that will address the need for translation professionals. The school says it is currently accepting applications for the new Graduate Certificate in Translation Studies. The post-graduate program begins in the fall of 2016.

The certificate will be offered by the Department of World Languages and Cultures in the IU School of Liberal Arts at the Indianapolis campus.

"The new certificate program will help prepare the workforce needed for the numerous requests for the growing limited English proficiency populations in Indiana and in the U.S. by providing quality translations through emerging technologies," Director Enrica Ardemagni said.

"We are proud to add this new certificate program to our program offerings in the IU School of Liberal Arts," Dean Thomas Davis said. "These students will work with faculty in the Department of World Languages and Cultures as well as in other departments and the community to hone their translation skills, as well as to offer a much-needed service to the growing limited-English-proficiency populations of the state. These future translators will comprise the next generation of professionals who will ensure access to needed services; they will, as well, broaden the scope of research that can be done in several languages through exemplary translated works."

IUPUI says there is an increased demand for translation skills in several fields including education, medical, legal and technical.

The application deadline is February 1.
