This course provides students with an insight into the needs of professional translation and interpreting in a globalised world where individuals, businesses, institutions, government and non-government agencies and organisations require quality translation and interpreting work between Chinese and English languages. Covering fields of translation and interpreting that are particularly in demand, this course aims to equip students with the competencies and skills necessary to enhance their career opportunities. It lays down a solid foundation upon which the students will be able to continuously build up their bilingual and bicultural competence in business and legal contexts. This course will enable students to translate and interpret a varied range of topics in various business and legal environments, to enhance understanding of cultural and ethical issues in relation to business and legal translation and interpreting, and to tackle complexities of cultural transmission systematically and creatively. Students will also learn to reflect on and explain their translation decisions and interpreting results.
