CHIN 5010 - Advanced Translation: Chinese to English

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2018

This course will prepare students with advanced skills in translating high complexity texts from Chinese into English. The course will help the learners acquire an adequate understanding of different approaches to translation that not only preserve the meaning of the source, but also conform to context and relevant conventions. Students will be guided to develop advanced skills in tackling textual complexity at lexical, grammatical and conceptual levels for various text types and negotiating differences in cross-cultural thought forms through translation practice. Practice covers topics related to different types of businesses, industries and professions including, but not limited to, health, finance, legal proceedings, media, public institutions, academic publications, literature and science. The course also provides students with opportunities to participate in group work and utilise computer-based translation technology. For students enrolled in the Master of Arts (Translation and Transcultural Communication) or Graduate Diploma in Translation and Transcultural Communication, the final exam result of the course will be used as evidence for determining eligibility for recommendation for NAATI Accreditation.
