The University of Zurich is pleased to announce a new partner in the interdisciplinary Master's degree program in ''Multilingual Text Analysis - Comparative Corpus Linguistics'': the Institute of Slavic Languages.

The Specialized Master in Multilingual Text Analysis (MLTA) is inspired by comparative Corpus Linguistics. It combines Linguistics in English, German, the Romance and the Slavic languages with methods and techniques from Computational Linguistics. The Master's program has been designed for students who want to complement their interest in Linguistics with a qualification in Language Technology. It is also suitable for students of Computational Linguistics who want to gain a multilingual perspective.

Comparative Corpus Linguistics is a fast-growing discipline due to the multitude of translated texts that are now available in digitised form. Moreover, with the increasing demand for interdisciplinary skills in languages and computers, many job opportunities have been created. MLTA graduates are well qualified for jobs in translation and terminology departments of international companies, as well as in the rapidly growing field of language technology.
