Sector: Education
Country location: Australia, China, Macau, Taiwan
Grantee: The University of Sydney

Project Description

This ACC project will promote international collaboration around digital education innovation in specialised professional translation between Chinese and English. Our digital education innovation will draw upon our expertise in the design and development of open digital databases and tools to improve translation services in business, trade and health. Translation serves as the foundation and catalyst of well-informed bilingual professional communication and cooperation. With increasing trade between Australia and China, there is a growing demand for high-quality translation services to facilitate business and trade between the two countries. This ACC project promotes international collaboration around digital education innovation in specialised professional translation between Chinese and English. This project will further enhance our existing successful experiences of engaging the public and industrial sectors to promote Australia-China cultural and business partnerships. This will have substantive and long-reaching impact on a variety of stakeholder involved in Australia-China cultural, business and education partnerships. This project will fill in an important gap in current specialised translation education which requires urgent increased communication between university training and demands from industry and businesses for highly-specialised translation skills.
