Course content

This interdisciplinary course combines the theoretical, technological and practical training necessary for effective translation between English and Chinese. It also offers training and practice in bi-lateral interpreting between the two languages.

In addition to core modules in translation and interpreting, you will also take modules in advanced English or Chinese Language. You can also choose from a number of optional modules that allow you to acquire or develop your knowledge of a language other than Chinese or English. You can also progress your existing expertise for technical translation purposes or acquire knowledge in a different area (eg. management).
