Centre for Translation | | |

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.
