School of Translation

HSMC Business Translation Centre

To increase the chance of students to practice what they have learnt, the School of Translation undertakes translation and interpretation projects commissioned by external parties and then assigns them to students as freelance assignments. The Translation Manager coordinates the language jobs received, supervises the students who have undertaken the assignments, ensures the quality of the work done by the students, and provides feedback for students.

HSMC Business Translation Centre is highly pedagogical in nature. It aims to enhance the competitiveness of our students by coaching them in practical matters and providing quality assurance. They work under the close supervision of Translation Manager and become professionally competent. Seminars and workshops are conducted regularly in order to provide insights into the language service industry. Topics include price negotiation, terminology building, consistency and accuracy in large translation projects, management of project time and partners, etc.
