  • A professional practicum related to translation (e.g. editorial work for a translation journal or online publication, development and teaching of an undergraduate translation course, engagement in community service translation projects; internship in a medical, legal, business, or other professional setting).
  • An applied project that takes up a concept or problem in the field of Translation Studies.
  • A significantly redeveloped/expanded/revised dissertation chapter, master’s thesis, or independent study focused on some aspect of the history, theory or practice Translation.
