Research Project

'Awarenesses and Skills in Translation Revision: An Empirical Study on English-into-Chinese Translation' 

My research project is focused primarily on the self-revision process of semi-professional and professional translators, investigating the awarenesses and skills they have employed during the self-revision phase. Based on the assumption that through professional translation revision training semi-professional translators will gradually internalize revision awarenesses and skills into their translation process and build their personal 'translation memory', the current research is engaged to make a comprehensive study of the following three questions: 1) what are the awarenesses that inform effective revision; 2) what skills does semi-professional translators need to acquire in order to carry out efficient revision; and 3) what specific suggestions can we make to improve English-Chinese translation pedagogy?
