Course description

This course is designed for students who are planning to work as a translator (English – Mandarin) typically in the community and business domains in personal documents, government, legal, health, technology, business, community, education, tourism, finance, consumer affairs, insurance, culture, science and commerce and economics. Candidates studying this program have Mandarin as their strongest language.

The Advanced Diploma of Translating prepares translators to translate texts where there may be significant equivalence problems between source and target text, the subject of the text has its own specific terminology, or there is need to undertake extensive research and translate complex language and concepts. Specific audiences may be found in commerce and marketing, government and international relations – including immigration, both regular and humanitarian – the media, and sectors generally considered to be professional, such as law, health and medicine, technology and science. Assignments may deal with material which requires significant quality assurance processes as the consequences of mistranslation can be far-reaching.
