This program has been designed for international students who are non-native speakers of Chinese and have advanced English and Chinese skills. The objective of the program is to establish a solid foundation in Chinese-English translation.
At the core of this Chinese-English Translation program are classes that devote equal amounts to both theory and practice. Theory courses include Introduction to Translation, English to Chinese Translation, Chinese to English Translation, and Comprehensive Topics in Translation, etc. The courses are mainly conducted in Chinese. Practice courses include translation practicum and discussion sessions to develop students' practical skills. At the end of this program, students need to complete English subtitles for an 8-13 minute online course video. NTU will select the finest translations to make public to the world.
