Call for Applications to the Regular Course

  The LTI Korea Translation Academy offers several exciting courses for aspiring translators of Korean literature. Designed for people deeply interested in translating Korean literature, the Regular Course was earlier offered as a one-year program. With the vision of transforming the Academy into a graduate school of translation, we expanded it into a two-year program in 2015. We are looking for talented applicants who will rise to the challenge of translating Korean literature, thereby contributing to the growth of its global readership.
