Closing Date – 2023-06-23

Translation is a sub-branch of Applied Linguistics which comes under General Linguistics. In Applied Linguistics, the findings and methods of General linguistics are employed to solve practical problems related to translation. The academic discipline concerned with the study of the theory and phenomena of translation is known as Translation Studies.

Since1972, the Department of Linguistics of the University of Kelaniya has been engaged in teaching and undertaking research in the domain of Translation Studies. The graduates who are equipped with this knowledge serve in various capacities in both government sector and private sector. As there is a new awakening in the Sri Lankan society, the necessity for translators and interpreters has arisen considerably. At this juncture, the Department of Linguistics extends its performance to fulfil this requirement by introducing the Diploma in Translation and Interpretation.

The basic objective of this course is to produce professional translators and interpreters with theoretical knowledge and practical experience. This is a one-year fee levying course and the lectures are conducted on Saturdays. Lecturers are delivered in Sinhala/English and Tamil is used where necessary.
