Hubei University began to explore the cultivation program of translation and interpreting in 2001, which was the earliest in Hubei to run interpreting pilot class as well as orientation of translation and interpreting majoring in English in 2002 and 2003 respectively. In 2008, with the BTI programme approved by the Ministry of Education of P.R. China, Hubei University thus became one of the first two universities (together with Huazhong University of Science and Technology) in Hubei to obtain the qualification for BTI programme enrolment. In 2010, Hubei University was authorized to run the MTI programme (Master of Translation and Interpreting), forming a T&I talent cultivation frame of “BTI-MTI-MA (oriented in translation)”. In 2011, the Department of Translation and Interpreting and MTI Education Centre were established.


We have been enrolling undergraduates since 2009 and have 167 students at present. After years of arduous work, we have achieved remarkable success in teaching, research and talent cultivation.


Teaching Staff


We boast a young well-experienced team with good educational backgrounds, degrees, academic qualifications, professional titles and research interests. Specifically,
there are 4 professors and 3 associate professors in terms of professional title; 5 teachers with domestic and foreign doctorates, and 2 PhD. candidates in terms of degree. All the teachers had the experience of academic visit at home or abroad.

During the past three years, we have won many high-level awards which can epitomize our strength in teaching and research. For example, the project “Development and Implementation of Innovative Talent cultivation System for BTI” by Professor Jiang Xiaomei and her peers won the second-level prize of “Award for Teaching Achievement” at provincial level and the first-level prize at university level. Professor Yang Yuangang and Professor Liu Guozhi were awarded respectively the title of “National Model Teacher in Master of Education Teaching”, “Model Female Teacher" of Hubei Province, “Model Teacher of Noble Morality” of Hubei University etc. Also, we have won many other awards such as “Top Ten Outstanding Young and Middle-aged Translators” in Hubei Province (twice), “Outstanding Academic Achievements Award of Hubei Translators’ Association” (6 first prizes and 1 second prize), and “Award for Excellent Teaching Quality” of Hubei University etc.

 

We have undertaken a number of teaching and research projects at provincial and ministerial level and have published a lot of textbooks, monographs on translation studies, and have translated many academic classics and literary works.
