The Institute for Interpretation and Translation Studies operates as an "advice centre" for the training of translators and interpreters in Sweden. With funds from the Swedish government, it defines and organizes various programmes in collaboration with different university language departments or schools. The programmes are in general translator training, community interpreting, contact interpreting and sign language interpreting. Some training programmes organized for community interpreters and sign-language interpreters are paraprofessional (i.e. 'non-academic').
