Hong Kong is always in need of personnel skilled in both English and Chinese. Regardless of title or profession, individuals frequently find themselves tapped for translation tasks; competency in multiple languages is a solid foundation for continued studies in any discipline and is often a prerequisite for career advancement.
The School offers translation programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels which aim to nurture sensitivity to languages and help students understand the nature of translation work.



This programme provides systematic training in translation for those who have a degree in any discipline other than translation.

  1. Theory and Practice of Translation
  2. Contrastive Studies and Linguistics
  3. English – Chinese Translation
  4. Chinese - English Translation
  5. Media Translation*

*subject to final approval
