This magazine is the product—or in pedagogical terms, the learning outcome—of a course offered by the Department of Translation at Lingnan University called Bilingual Publication Workshop. The aim of the Department of Translation is to not only train students in written translation and oral interpreting between Chinese and English, but also to prepare students for work in a wide variety of careers that require excellent bilingual skills. In Hong Kong, many jobs, such as those in the publishing world, require such training.
