CI3M offers truly professional training programmes covering all the skills you need to offer translation or writing services.

Flexibility and skill diversity are what you need to be employable.

Once a solid foundation has been formed, specialisations of field, document type and professional environment are added.

The training programmes provide the technical, methodological, and strategic components, as well as an initial experience of "heavy-going" applications.

CI3M offers university-level qualifications recognised by the government and the European Union (Level 7).
