Lotsawa Rinchen Zangpo Translator Program
Lotsawa Rinchen Zangpo Translator Programme is a 4-year Tibetan language training program aimed at providing native speaker interpreters in FPMT centers worldwide.The
The program consists of two years of classroom study in Dharamsala, India followed by two years of training at an FPMT center as an interpreter for a geshe.
There have been five LRZTP programs so far.
The next LRZTP (LRZTP 6) will start on 8th October 2012.
First year: colloquial Tibetan, Literary Tibetan, Dharma terminology, experienced conversation partners.
Second year: comprehension of Dharma teachings, methodology and techniques of interpretation (simultaneous and consecutive), interpretation workshops by language groups (into one’s own native language, as much as possible).
NB: LRZTP 6 has a few places for students wishing to follow only the 2-year classroom program without committing to becoming an FPMT interpreter.
