Course Aims

Bilingual editing is a kind of editing undertaken in a bilingual mode. In the process of editing, whether in the stage of research, interview, reporting or writing, proofreading, polishing or revising for a book, a newspaper, a magazine, a text or a film, two languages (both source and target languages) are intricately involved in efficiently transmitting messages linguistically or culturally.  The final product of such editing may be expressed, written or printed in either language or both languages.

This course aims to provide students the basic knowledge, concepts and techniques of a bilingual editor, and develop their editing sense in practical editing assignments.
