In this paper, I suggest that the notion of a "wise translator" ought to summarise the outcome of translator education. The suggestion is that demands for both pure disciplinary education and pure technical skill should be subsumed under the notion of wisdom. The article explores the role that choices in curriculum play at the level of higher education. It also conceptualises the outcome of translator education. It then makes a number of choices for such a curriculum to be aligned with wisdom as outcome.
