Abstract: In this talk, we present the strategic and operational considerations behind offering a new study profile in accessible communication in the Professional Translation MA programme at ZHAW's IUED Institute of Translation and Interpreting. The presentation covers the didactic and technological implementation of the profile as well as its advantages for graduate employability in enhancing core competences and transferable skills. Discussing the use case of the recently developed Accessible Communication Lab in the ZHAW School of Applied Linguistics, the presentation ends by emphasising the need for national and international network-building among all actual and potential stakeholders in the research, teaching, learning, industry and target-group communities.
