Laboratories of SI

The Department has a computer and translation lab (for simultaneous and consecutive interpretations). There is very comfortable and modern equipment for oral interpretation. Moreover the department has opened a multimedia class for our students in order to provide them with audio and video courses. Curriculum objectives include the improvement of the students' oral and written communication skills in their mother tongue and the development of their skills in one or more foreign languages to the level required for a translator's working language. Laboratory 404 is equipped with a projector connected to the computer, where students and teachers present their presentations. There is Satellite TV with a help of which students can do oral or written translations. Students can listen to the records given by the teacher and translate them immediately. Laboratory 409 is used for computer-aided translation. There are 20 computers connected to the Internet where students use translation programs like TRADOS, PROMP, WORDFAST and many other programs. Laboratory 410 is equipped the most modern equipment for oral interpretation which includes headphones, microphones both for the speaker and interpreters, two booths, regulators of sound and regulators of channels. There students can make simultaneously two interpretations in two different languages in the booths. And others can enjoy their translation by choosing which interpretations they will listen to. So, all laboratories of the departments have projectors, computers and TV.

We are glad with our teaching staff for their hard work, and important contribution in the development of educational process in our department. And we wish all the best for our students in their studies and in their personal lives as well.
