The new website for the Research Centre for Translations (RCT) of the Institute of Chinese Studies, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

7 June 2011

It is with great pleasure that I announce the launch of the new website for the Research Centre for Translation (RCT) of the Institute of Chinese Studies, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. It can be accessed by visiting www.cuhk.edu.hk/rct.

The new website, launched in time for our celebrations for the Centre’s 40th Anniversary, thoroughly explains the history, mission, and achievements of the RCT. It also details the research projects, publication plans and other future developments of the Centre, both in the field of translation studies and Chinese literature translation. It is the source of comprehensive information for the activities of the Centre. I sincerely hope that the new interface and the clear navigation will help you browse through the contents with ease and joy.

In our efforts to serve the translation studies community, we have introduced a number of new features to our website. Among them, I would like to highlight the Translation Studies Resourcespage. It provides a free announcement service for disseminating news and information in the field. If you are planning to hold conferences or workshops; sending calls for papers; offering learning and research opportunities, grants, awards, scholarships or recruitment, please send us a post and let us help you spread the word.

As our flagship journal Renditionshas earned international recognition as the leading journal of Chinese literature in English translation, we feel the need to share these valuable translation resources with translators and researchers. We will soon upload the early issues of Renditions, in particular those that are out of print, for free access. We are also working hard on building a database of material on the translation history of China, initially for the period of 1842—1949, as part of our endeavor to establish the RCT as a key centre for research on Chinese translation history.

In this digital age, the websites provide a platform for effective interactions. I sincerely hope that ours can serve this purpose. You are most welcome to visit our website, browse through the pages, gather useful information, and most important of all, provide your comments and feedbacks for us to further enrich and improve its contents. I look forward to working closely with you to promote translation and translation studies throughout Hong Kong, China, Asia, and the rest of the world.

Yours sincerely,
Lawrence Wang-chi Wong
Director
Research Centre for Translation
The Chinese University of Hong Kong
