＊ To train professional interpreters and translators.
＊ To facilitate research in translation and interpretation studies.
Translation studies are inter-disciplinary by nature and should transcend the linguistic or technical level. As people, information, capital and technology flow rapidly and frequently in a global world, translation has become more important in every aspect of communication and interaction among cultures. By collaborating with talents from literature, cultural studies, linguistics, psychology, information technology, media studies, management, sociology and other relevant fields, we can further explore how translation plays a part in human history and shape our future.
