This course aims to develop students' skills in translation from English into Chinese as well as a solid understanding of theories underpinning translation practice. The course integrates theoretical concepts with practice. It introduces different approaches to help students become aware of their own perceptions of translation, translation processes and translation difficulties. It takes an inter-disciplinary approach and utilises contrastive linguistic and cultural analyses to expose students to the features and requirements of text production in both Chinese and English as well as for different genres and purposes. Translation practice covers a variety of text types including certificates, news reports, public speeches, company descriptions, websites, policies and legal documents etc., a professional would commonly be called upon to translate. The course also provides students with opportunities to participate in group work and utilise computer-based translation technology.
