Graduate Certificate
The graduate certificates are presumably more intensive than the undergraduate certificates. The main noticeable difference between the two is that graduate certificates have a bachelor's degree as a prerequisite.

University of California at Los Angeles
The UCLA Extension program prepares students for legal translation and interpreting. This one-year certificate program consisting of 8 required
courses is taught in Spanish/English, Korean/English, and
Chinese/English. Candidates for admission must be bilingual, with a BA in language or a related field preferred.


California State University at Los Angeles
For this Spanish/English Legal Interpreting and Legal Translation certificate, there are 7 required courses, 28 credit hours. However, none of the courses may be taken concurrently, and no more than one quarter can be missed. The program is designed to help students pass county, state, and federal certification examinations, although there are 2 optional courses for medical translation and interpreting training.

Georgia State University
GSU offers a 15-credit certificate in Translation, as seen in this web link. The two languages available are French and Spanish into English, and a B average must be maintained at all times. An interpreting program is also offered, focusing on simultaneous and consecutive training, and including a mandatory research project.

College of Charleston
This university offers a Spanish/English bilingual legal interpreting certificate that follows the same pattern as their master's degree program. The certificate requires 12 credits, and classes are also taken in the summer. The student must be enrolled in another graduate program in order to participate.

Binghamton University
Located in New York, Binghamton has a Translation Research & Instruction Program, TRIP, offering a literary or a non-literary translation certificate. Languages are French, German, Korean, and Spanish into English, although other language pairs can be arranged as needed. Each certificate requires completion of 16 credit hours.

Monterrey Institute of International Studies
The Monterrey Institute, in California, offers two interpreting certificates in Spanish/English only. Medical interpreting and Court interpreting are offered throughout the year in order to foster professional careers in these areas. The programs are designed to help students pass competency qualification exams in certain states, and are taught at introductory, intermediate, and advanced levels.

University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee
UWM offers a 24-credit translation certificate, that can be partially
completed at the undergraduate level. The credits are divided into
eight 3-credit courses where basic and specific translation skills are
learned, and the program includes an internship.

Wake Forest University
Two distinct Spanish/English certificates are obtainable at WFU. The first in Spanish Translation and Localization, STI, introduces the translation techniques and application of software, concentrating also in stylistics and grammar. The Spanish Interpreting certificate offers an introduction to interpreting along with a background in translation/linguistics. Both involve an internship to use learned skills in a professional environment.
