Information professionals from all sectors are increasingly likely to encounter situations where knowledge of a foreign language might be useful; however, at present, few LIS programs incorporate language courses. We present a proposal for a Combined Degree Program (CDP) that will allow students to receive a BA in Translation and a Master of Information Studies within a reduced time period by allowing a limited number of identified program credits to count towards both programs. While translation and LIS might not appear to have much in common, we demonstrate that there is actually considerable overlap and complementarity as regards research, teaching and practice, thus making a CDP an attractive proposition.
