Recently, in the translation sector, new multifaceted profiles requiring a great domain of new technologies have emerged: localization, post-editing, and transcreation. To train future professionals, it is necessary to define the cross-curricular competencies they require. Cross-curricular competencies involve gaining cross-disciplinary skills in the teaching-learning process. However, cross-curricular competencies are often relegated to a second place. The main objective of this chapter is to explore how disruptive methodologies can be applied to studies in translation and interpreting to foster cross-curricular competencies. After defining innovation in higher education, this work outlines which are the most suitable disruptive methodologies that foster cross-curricular competencies in the undergraduate program in translation and interpreting.
