Our Graduates

More than one hundred language-services professionals have graduated from Translation & Interpreting Studies. Our graduates go on to a variety of industry and academic positions. Most enter the language-services industry. Many have launched successful freelance businesses in the US and abroad. Others have secured positions as CEOs, sales or project managers, editors, quality control specialists, or translators in translation companies across the globe.

We also have alumni active in academia, chairing or teaching in translation and/or interpreting programs across the nation. Approximately five per cent of our graduates pursue PhD studies, and many of them are employed in academic positions in the US and abroad.

“I got my Master’s in Translation from UWM and within six months I was able to pay my bills working as a freelance translator & interpreter. Not bad!”
