What training courses are there in Belgium for future translators? As you can imagine, this is not a profession that can be improvised – it requires solid foundations. In Belgium, translation schools are flourishing all over the country, training hundreds of professional translators every year.
In recent years, translation training in Belgium has become an academic subject taught in universities over five years (a bachelor’s degree in three years and a master’s in two). This is due to the Marcourt decree, which stipulates that all master’s courses in translation and interpreting should be university degrees. We have drawn up a list of the main Belgian universities teaching translation.
