Thinking Chinese Translation is a practical and comprehensive course for advanced undergraduates and postgraduate students of Chinese.

Thinking Chinese Translation explores the ways in which memory, general knowledge, and creativity (summed up as “schema”) contribute to the linguistic ability necessary to create a good translation. The course develops the reader’s ability to think deeply about the texts and to produce natural and accurate translations from Chinese into English.

A wealth of relevant illustrative material is presented taking the reader through a number of different genres and text types of increasing complexity including:

  • Technical, scientific and legal texts
  • Journalistic and informative texts
  • Literary and dramatic texts

This text is available as a complimentary exam copy to qualified professors and educators. Request your copy today!
