CHIN 5017 - Translation and Interpreting Internship

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2018

This course offers valuable learning to students from both Chinese and English speaking backgrounds, to enhance their translation and interpreting expertise in an 84-hour supervised practicum. This unit consists of three components: (1) observation of a practitioner approaching particular translation and/or interpreting tasks; (2) simulated work experience; and (3) work experience at an institution assigned and/or approved by the co-ordinator. Upon completion of this course, students are expected to (1) have accumulated competence, confidence and experience adequate for a future career in professional translation and interpreting; and (2) have developed an in-depth understanding of, and a clear conviction for the career of a professional translator and interpreter. Successful completion of the translation & interpreting internship is compulsory for recommendation for NAATI tests in translation and interpreting.
