Experiential Learning

 

Overview

 

The BA Programme places strong emphasis on experiential learning. In addition to the Placement component of the Translation Major, the Programme also has a Translation Workshop course, as well as a yearly initiative with the Children’s Council. More recently, under the Community Interpreting course, a student interpreting "company", Inter-Link was established.

 

In addition, different course instructors involve students in other forms of experiential learning, such as publishing projects and departmental conference support.

About Us

 

Established in January 1992, the HKBU Translation Workshop is a student-led translation company formed by Translation major students, and now one of the service-learning courses of the University. We provide quality and professional Chinese and English translation services under the supervision of teaching staff from the HKBU Department of Translation, Interpreting and Intercultural Studies. Through hands-on experience, we intend to link our theoretical knowledge with professional practice in order to fulfill the translation needs of our community. The Workshop also aims at nurturing students’ management and leadership potential.

 

We aspire to make the Department better known to the local translation circle and prospective employers.

 

Quality Control

To guarantee high quality translation, every translated work is reviewed by two editors and the staff supervisor to ensure that it meets professional standards.

 

Our Team Structure

Our professional translation service is provided by a team of fifteen members, including a manager, two vice managers, a treasurer, five editors, two PR coordinators, three designers, a DTP Specialist, a CAT specialist, and all of us are translators.

The Children’s Council meeting is an event to promote children’s rights jointly organized by three local non-governmental organizations including Against Child Abuse, Hong Kong Committee on Children's Rights and Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF.

 

The Department of Translation, Interpreting and Intercultural Studies and the Centre for Translation have been sponsoring the translation and interpreting services for the annual Children’s Council meeting since its inception in 2003.

 

The Department and the Centre lead a team of undergraduate students and graduates of the B.A. in Translation Programme to translate the motion papers and provide simultaneous interpreting for the event. The motion papers are delivered by groups of students from selected secondary schools in the presence of a number of legislative councillors and government officials.

 

The motion papers are usually published bilingually afterwards and the books will distributed to schools, government departments and non-government organizations.
