Translation Society | | |

Organizing academic societies is an exciting part of university life. Inaugurated in April each year, the Translation Society organizes and coordinates activities for translation students of all years in the Programme, including orientation camp, orientation night, high table dinner and the Academic Week. The committee, comprised of students in their second year of study, seeks to cultivate a professional attitude amongst members through co-curricular and extra-curricular studies and projects.

One of the highlights and traditions of the Society is the organization of Academic Week. The event focusses on a specific theme each year and usually features a talk, an exhibition and book sales on the campus. The themes of the Academic Week included "Subtitles Translation", "Interpreting" and "Martial Arts Translation", to name only a few. Through the organization of various activities in the Academic Week, the discipline was promoted to students with other majors.

Committee members of the Society are sometimes invited to assist the Programme in University-wide activities such as offering advice to prospective students during the JUPAS Information Day.
