|The Centre for Translation of the Hong
Kong Baptist University was established in 1994 as a University-wide Research
Unit. Committed to academic research and to translation projects covering
material from diverse fields, the Centre aims to promote the discipline of
translation to match the rapid development and needs of the present day world.
The Centre is established to make
available translations mainly from English to Chinese and Chinese to English of
archival, documentary, research and other related material. Through this
important work, the Centre hopes to contribute to international research and
scholarship, and to build up a body of work in translation previously
inaccessible to scholars because of the language barrier.
The objectives of the Centre are:
- to initiate, plan, coordinate and support research and publication projects related to translation;
- to liaise among academics, inside and outside the Hong Kong Baptist
University, and professional practitioners in the field to carry out research and publication projects;
- to coordinate the efforts of the staff with those of translation
graduates, postgraduate students and undergraduate students of this University
in research and publication projects in order to foster a research culture and a
culture of good professional practice.
