Lili Xiang (Middlesex University): Translating The Highway Code in Great Britain into Chinese

The talk will be based on a study on translating The Highway Code in Great Britain into Chinese. Having discovered that very little research has been undertaken on translating public information as compared to other text types, in the study the author first sought to establish whether there was an identifiable need to translate The Highway Code for Chinese readers and second, whether following a Functionalist approach could help the author to achieve an adequate translation.

Originally from China, Lili Xiang completed her MA in Theory and Practice of Translation at Middlesex University in 2014 and was awarded a Merit. Her research interests include translation history, translation studies, audio-visual translation and technical translation. She also works full time as a Data Officer in the Registry of Middlesex University.
