CHIN 7008 - Translation & Interpreting: Cultural Communication

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2019

This course deals with the relationship between language and culture, in particular, it addresses the question of how intercultural communication can be facilitated and enhanced through effective translation and interpreting between Chinese and English. Students will be equipped to increase cultural awareness and cultural flexibility in order to interact effectively between cultures through practical training. It is expected that at the end of this course, students will have developed a sophisticated understanding of how translation and interpreting can be a shift, not between two languages, but between two cultures and will be able to negotiate and manage the cultural differences they encounter to serve a valued communicative purpose.
