The Chinese program equips students with the latest skill sets for professional careers in translation, interpretation, and localization management.
Courses are content-based and market-oriented, with balanced emphasis on contemporary literature, law, international relations and politics, economics, environmental protection, energy, intellectual property rights, trade and commerce, medicine, and technology. Our faculty members’ real-world experience in different sectors gives students a broad perspective of the professional field.
During summer and winter breaks, students take advantage of available internships at organizations including Stanford Hospitals and Clinics, Hara, Kyocera, Translations.com, Taipei Economic and Cultural Office, and ISI.
Our graduates are sought after around the world by high-profile companies and organizations for opportunities such as managing localization projects for Silicon Valley giants like Apple and Google; interpreting in high-profile events like United Nations conferences, U.S.-China state visits, the Olympics, and APEC and WTO Ministerial Conferences; working with Bank of China on many levels; translating materials for government and nongovernment groups; and translating literary volumes.
