AU: 3.0
Programme: HSS

This course provides practical training in English-Chinese translation and vice versa. Students will learn the basic techniques of translation and analyse and develop translation strategies through practical exercises. They will be exposed to the linguistic, syntactic and stylistic features of texts in 3 specialised areas of translation: Mass Media, Business and Science and Technology, and explore the use of translation strategies for rendering such texts. They will work on a project in one of these areas as part of the assessment.
