Abstract: The goals, theoretical foundations, didactic concept, and admission criteria of the Specialized Translation professional development program at the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (IUED) at the ZHAW are presented and then the special challenges of evaluating translation competence are discussed. Issues associated with evaluation are typical of any translation program but may be accentuated in courses for practising professionals. The application of translation process research techniques to the translation processes of two participants from a recent cohort of the IUED program illustrate how some of these issues can be addressed.
