Bring diverse people together with an Advanced Diploma of Translating (Mandarin-English both directions). This course prepares students to translate special purpose texts and convey information between languages with significant equivalence problems.
Students will learn to negotiate assignments, apply codes and standards to professional judgement, edit texts, and ensure quality control of translations conducted by themselves and others.
This qualification covers the competencies required to translate special purpose texts from one language to another, to convey information written using specific terminology for a specific audience in functionally equivalent translated texts that are accurate and appropriate to the context, target audience and end use.
The Advanced Diploma of Translating prepares translators to translate texts where there may be significant equivalence problems between source and target text, the subject of the text has its own specific terminology, or there is need to undertake extensive research and translate complex language and concepts.
Specific audiences may be found in commerce and marketing, government and international relations – including immigration, both regular and humanitarian – the media, and sectors generally considered to be professional, such as law, health and medicine, technology and science.
Assignments may deal with material which requires significant quality assurance processes as the consequences of mis-translation can be far reaching.
