Perhaps we could provide a little information that might speak to concerns about the quality of the new Master of Conference Interpreting at Glendon.

First, since the very early stages of the planning of our program, we have solicited input from the major institutional employers of conference interpreters. The Government of Canada, the European Institutions, the United Nations and the Pan-American Institutions, to name but a few, have all provided feedback on our program design. What's more, many of these stakeholders have been providing us with practical support, be it in the form of advice, interpreting practice material, or a commitment to take part in final exam juries. In short, we have been truly fortunate to benefit from the astute guidance of the world's top interpreting services.

Second, the expert interpreters who have developed our courses all have an impressive wealth of experience. All are accredited with one or more of the bodies mentioned above, and this accreditation has allowed them to offer quality interpreting services at some of the highest level national and international events out there. What's more, these colleagues have solid teaching credentials, and they have been involved in interpreter training at reputable universities in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. We have nothing but the utmost confidence that our colleagues' professional and pedagogical know-how will make our program extremely effective.

Because of these two factors, we are certain that the Master of Conference Interpreting at Glendon will offer students the progressive and informed learning opportunities they need to be competitive on many national and institutional markets. Anyone interested in knowing more about our program would be welcome to contact us at interpretation@glendon.yorku.ca

Sincerely,

The Master of Conference Interpreting Development Team,
Glendon School of Translation, York University
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Master of Conference Intepreting,
Glendon School of Translation
