MATIS students are trained in the use of industry-standard software, including translation memory tools, terminology management tools and subtitling applications.
Brand-new interpreting booths and state-of-the-art Televic conference interpreting equipment give MACINT students the opportunity to train in the same kind of facilities used in the European Parliament and other international organisations. A second interpreting lab provides additional self-study and advanced digital recording facilities.
