Hello everyone! I am currently attending an undergraduate course at the School for Interpreters and Translators in Trieste (ITALY) and my combination is Italian, English and Portuguese. I would like to study these 3 languages also in a master's degree course for INTERPRETATION only, but there are not schools for interpreters with these languages in Italy. Do you maybe know the schools around the world that offer these languages for a master's degree course in interpretation? thanks in advance.

Hi Margherita,

as sad as it may sound, if Italian schools don't offer that language combination, it's because it's not likely to give you any work. You'd need either a strong B (English, for a quite competitive private market) or 3 C languages (EU profile) to have a slight chance to start a career in conference interpreting.

There certainly are schools outside of Italy that will offer any combination you'd like to have and award you with a diploma, but you won't be able to make a living as a conference interpreter.
