The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong, School of Translation and Foreign Languages


GALA Member

The School of Translation and Foreign Languages (STFL) is one of the five Schools of The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong (HSUHK).

The STFL's Bachelor of Translation with Business (Honours) (BTB) Programme began operation in September 2010 and is the first of its kind in Hong Kong. It provides our students with four years of intensive training in translation and interpreting, as well as in business skills, general education and the Chinese and English languages (so-called bi-literacy and tri-lingualism).

We are committed to small-class instruction, with no more than 20 students in a class. As each student is given individual attention, we are able to create an unparalleled environment of intimacy, interaction and participation in our classrooms. Students in the BTB programme are also enriched with experience acquired from overseas learning and internships. Read our alumni stories to learn about the different pathways our graduates head for.

In 2016, the School embarked on a new journey by offering a Master of Arts in Translation (Business and Legal) Programme, the first postgraduate programme for the School and HSU. In 2018, the School introduced its second postgraduate programme: Master of Arts in Translation (Computer-Aided Translation) Programme.

In light of the growing role of translation technology and artificial intelligence in professional translation, we offer comprehensive training in computer-aided translation (CAT) and help our students get hands-on experience with the latest technology for a wide range of language services, including translation, bilingual writing, editing, localization, and digital marketing. Our translation technology laboratory provides access to state-of-the-art CAT tools, such as machine translation systems, translation memories, terminology databases, corpora and concordancers, and localization platforms. We also conduct pioneering research on technology for legal and financial translation, game localization, and digital humanities.

The HSUHK was restructured from the former Hang Seng School of Commerce and was established in 2010 as a non-profit, self-financed university-level institution, with five Schools (Business, Communication, Decision Sciences, Humanities & Social Science, and Translation) and around 5,000 full-time students.
