Chinese- English Translation Workshop

Do you want to improve your Chinese?

你想提高你的英文水平吗?

In partnership with Language Connection, The Marco Polo Project run weekly Translation Workshops for learners of Chinese and English.

Participants will be divided into groups of two or three and will be guided to collaboratively translate contemporary Chinese writing into English. Articles will cover diverse topics such as food, politics, education, poverty, identity, cultural conflict, just to name a few.

To cover the cost of the room there is an entry fee of $5.

Please bring a laptop if you have one.

The Workshops will be delivered by Mr Julien Leyre, CEO of The Marco Polo Project (a non-profit organisation that aims to be a reliable online source of information on China).

A writer, language educator and speaker of eight languages including Chinese and English, Julien is passionate about languages and well-versed in the art of translation. He will share with you his insights, strategies and approaches to Chinese-English translation. Julien is also an engaging speaker so be prepared to learn lots while having fun!

We hope to see you there! :)
