Currently, in a globalized world, the professional formation and training of translators and interpreters becomes an outstanding need in the organizational environment. As the exercise of translation and interpretation has always been an empirical and occasional practice through times, it is important that these translators and interpreters become conscious about their growing need to get a formal educational preparation and training, not only in scientific and technical fields, but also in areas such as economy, finances and international business. Therefore, our present world requires that these translation and interpretation professionals create their business plans to set up their own companies to satisfy the demands of other companies and the current market. An example of these efforts is the experience that Universidad EAN has implemented through a double- diploma master- degree program on scientific and technical, economic, financial and international business translation in coordination with Universidad Pompeu Fabra, in Spain. This postgraduate program aims at providing the necessary translation tools and strategies based on the experience of Spanish and Colombian experts in the fields of translation and interpretation.
