About the Event
Hello everybody. I am Dr Graeme Ford.
I'm going to do a little series of translating classes in 2022. I hope you'll join me.
- Translating between Chinese and English gives us a good understanding of the grammar of both languages.
- The best type of text to translate is the plain information text. Both the meaning and the discourse can be made very exact.
- The interesting thing about Chinese and English grammar is that they seem to go in opposite directions. What goes first in Chinese goes last in English, and vice versa.
