By 28th March 2018October 30th, 2020Blackboard

The Literature Translation Institute of Korea is a Korean government-affiliated organization that has been working for the sole purpose of supporting the translation of Korean literature and expansion of its readership across the world.

With this aim, LTI Korea established the Translation Academy in 2008 to foster and train professional literary translators. It offers three courses, which are the Regular Course, the Special Course, and a practicum program called the Translation Atelier. The Academy has produced over 1,000 graduates thus far who completed the courses since 2008.

Starting from 2015, with the vision of transforming the Academy into a graduate school of translation, we are expanding the Regular Course, which was a one-year course in the past, into a two-year course. The Regular Course is scheduled to begin in September 2018 for the academic years 2018-2020.

Applications will require recommendations from academic teachers or supervisors.
