Biography

Honorary Dean, Hieronymus College



Miguel Duro Moreno (Spain) graduated in Translation and Interpreting at the Universidad de Granada. Later on, he gained a master’s degree and a Ph. D. degree in Translation and a bachelor's and a master's degree in Semitic studies (Arabic) from the same institution. In 2000 he was appointed as sworn (officially certified) translator/interpreter for the English language by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Ten years later he was accredited as Associate Professor (Senior Lecturer) by the Spanish official accreditation authorities. In 2019 he joined Woolf University as Associate Professor in Translation and Interpreting and Dean at Hieronymus College (Honorary Dean as of 1 October, 2021). For more than thirty years he has combined the professional practice of translation with the teaching and research thereof in many a university across three continents. His research interests lie mainly in the fields of Comparative Law (applied to Legal Translation and Sworn Translation), Disruptive Technologies applied to Translation, and Coseriu’s Linguistics as a translation model. He has published extensively on these topics and is the editor of the DERECHO, DISCURSO Y TRADUCCIÓN series at the law publishing house Edisofer (Madrid, Spain). He is a proud member of APTIJ, a Spain-based professional association focusing on Legal Translation, Sworn Translation/Interpreting, and Court Interpreting.
