Through these individual projects, students can experience the practical challenges faced by professional translators and interpreters and develop problem-solving skills. Students are also expected to become aware of the codes of ethics for translators and interpreters and learn how to deal with clients and manage projects.

At the beginning of the course, students will learn about the objective of this course, the skillsets required for translators and interpreters, and the professional mindset they need to acquire by taking part in the practicum. They will also be introduced to the various interpreting and translation opportunities available to them through Rikkyo Community Language Service (RiCoLaS), internships, part-time jobs, and other means. Based on the advice of the instructor, students will develop further plans for their individual projects.
