Tashi Delek!

Welcome to Lotsawa Rinchen Zangpo Translator Program (LRZTP), one of the leading schools in the formation of specialized interpreters and translators from Tibetan. Our approach to the vast Tibetan knowledge through a Western pedagogical system provides our students with the philosophical terminology as well as interpreting and translation skills required to start working as an interpreter in a Buddhist Dharma center or a free-lance Tibetan translator.
