First of its Kind in Asia

Established in 1972, the Department of Translation is the first of its kind in Asia.
The curriculum of the Translation programme covers a wide range of study areas, including literary translation, legal translation, business translation, subtitling, interpreting, translation studies and computer-aided translation. With its balanced emphasis on both theory and practice, the programme prepares students for further studies and makes them ideal candidates for careers in translation and interpreting, law, business, publishing, journalism, government or education.
