Certificate in Business Chinese Translation Skills

Designed for working adults who need to translate English business documents into Chinese and/or communicate in Chinese, orally and in writing, especially those who work with Chinese clients/ counterparts.

This course aims to equip learners with the necessary skills to translate various types of business documents into Chinese. This activity-based and business-focused course places an emphasis on the ability to “re-write” the English original into customer-centered Chinese, taking cultural sensitivity and customer focus into consideration, instead of a literal translation.
