The Department of Translation Studies provides undergraduate and postgraduate translator and interpreter training. In the BA (Bc.) and MA (Mgr.) study programs, there are about 300 students and about 20 in the PhD. study program. Students can combine two languages out of English, Russian, German, French, and Slovak.

In the year 2011, the MA study program in translation and interpreting offered by the Department became a member of the European Master’s in Translation (EMT) Network set up by the European Commission. The EMT is a quality label for university translation programs at master’s level that meet agreed standards in translator education and EMT Network acts as a forum for member programs and promotes exchange of best practice. The EMT certificate attests the program’s membership in a European network of excellence and enhances the profile of translators - graduates of certified university study programs - on the job market.

The teaching staff and the research team of the Department as well as the other departments collaborating in teaching and research activities in translation studies follow the tradition of theoretical research in translation studies in Nitra going back to the 1970s and 1980s to become known both in Slovakia and worldwide as the Nitra School. The leading figure of the School in the area of translation studies was Anton Popovič (1933-1984) - an outstanding Slovak scholar.

Apart from the teaching staff of the Department of Translation Studies, the staff providing translator and interpreting training are from the Department of English and American Studies, the Department of German Studies, the Department of Russian Studies, the Department of Romance Studies, the Department of Slovak Language, the Department of Slovak Literature, the Department of Philosophy, and the Department of Political and European Studies.
