Institute of Translation and Multilingual Communication
The Institute of Translation and Multilingual Communication (ITMK) at the TH Köln - University of Applied Sciences is one of the world's largest academic institutes currently educating students in the field of multilingual communication, translation and interpreting.
Up-to-date technical equipment and a large number of international partnerships enable a practice-oriented education backed up with solid training in the underlying science. Prospective students can choose from two Bachelor degrees and four Master degrees.
Our staff and our approximately 1,500 students are just as internationally oriented as our programs – they all help shape the institute's open and multicultural learning and working environment.
Both basic and applied research play an important role at the ITMK, alongside teaching. Our staff contribute to regional, national and European research projects and publish papers in national and international scientific media. The participation of our staff in academic and professional associations and standards committees is also essential to our philosophy.
