“The profession of a translator holds a special place in the world. Our goal is not just to transfer information, but also to preserve cultural aspects and clearly and precisely word our thoughts. This is what students of the Translator in the Field of Professional Communications are taught. My expectations of this course were met completely. The most important thing is that we had a lot of practical training, thanks to which I understood that I want to be a translator,” said graduate of the programme for professional re-training, Wang Yuying.
