Course Description:

Business Translation is an elective for English juniors. This course is based on the latest research into translation and integrates the study of business culture, international business knowledge and translation practice. Business Translation hones students’ translation skills in a variety of commonly used business media, such as corporate names, business cards, advertisements, business correspondence, specifications, contracts, and legal documents. The course places emphasis on both students’ mastery of the features of the main business genres and cultural differences at the macro level, and on the analysis of lexical and syntactical features at the micro level. Through this course, students will grasp the stylistic features of some business genres and can translate them with adequate fidelity, fluency and loyalty to the original style. Hence, students will improve their business translation skills and cross-cultural communicative competence which are needed if they will later work in foreign companies or be involved in international business.
