Courses in Chinese Language & Culture
- Translation and Interpreting for Science, Engineering and Technology (SET)
The Confucius Institute at The University of Queensland will offer a new English-Chinese Translation and Interpreting (T&I) course for special purposes in Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) commencing semester II, 2011. The course will be held in joint collaboration with the MACTI Program at the School of Languages and Comparative Cultural Studies.
This course is intended for students and people from scientific and technical backgrounds. The duration of this course is one semester with 2 contact hours per week. The course includes translation in engineering, information technology, medicine and mining. Students are expected to engage in practical translation under the supervision of experts. The course will also provide research guidance to help students better undertake translations in the relevant disciplines. The course will not only analyse features of scientific and technical articles from the linguistic perspective, but also assess and rectify translations from the viewpoint of science and technology.
The course is available to both students and members of the community. For members of the community, this course can be studied in ‘assessed’ or ‘non-assessed’ mode; upon completing the course, they will receive a Certificate issued by the Confucius Institute at the University of Queensland.
