The RCT held its first Summer School on Chinese Translation History on 21–25 June 2009 in Guangzhou, in collaboration with Guangdong University of Foreign Studies. The event was a tremendous success, attracting over 40 participants from China, Taiwan, Macau and Hong Kong. Held over a period of one week, the programme for the Summer School included intensive lectures on key topics delivered by prominent scholars in the translation discipline, workshops and thorough discussions amongst participants.

Here are what some participants have to say:

"... ...such rare opportunity for us to understand Chinese Translation History's unique attraction and value in greater depth. The lectures by the professors inspired us greatly, provided us with many ideas and motivated us to pursue our paths with confidence."

"Thank you RCT for your hard work in promoting Chinese Translation History and in nurturing young scholars in this field. I hope to repay your benevolence with the fruit of my rigorous research in the future."

"Thank you very much for organizing the Summer School. It has expanded my outlook and thinking, and has given me the opportunity to listen to so many interesting lectures by renowned scholars and to be able to interact directly with them. It has also allowed me to meet with many other like-minded young scholars. These experiences have helped lay a good foundation for my future research in Translation History."
