    This course is a project-based course offered to students taking the Master of Arts in Applied Translation programme. This course enables students to gain professional practice in a specialized area (e.g. business, law, tourism, journalism, literature, etc.). It enhances students’ translation methods and skills in handling the stylistic, linguistic and cultural dimensions in a lengthy text. With the aid of an individual supervision system, students are required to translate a source text of about 7,000 words either from English into Chinese or from Chinese into English. Students should take either this course or TRAN A836BF. Approval from the Programme Leader is required.

    The course aims to deepen students’ previous knowledge in the English and Chinese languages as well as translation. It also aims to strengthen their abilities to produce an extended translation of high quality in a specialized area, either from English into Chinese or vice versa.

    The course covers the following topics:

    • Understanding the supervision system

    • Identifying a specialized area and a source text

    • Translators’ code of ethics (e.g. the issue of plagiarism)

    • Understanding and analysing the features of the source text

    • Thinking about the translation theories, methods and skills

    • The use of reference tools

    • The translation process

    • Producing the translated text

    Contact hours
    There will be regular supervision sessions throughout the course.
