The Centre for Translation Studies was established in 1989 with an endowment fund from the Wei Lun Foundation with the intention of further scholarly activities in the discipline of translation and interpreting studies.

Today, the Centre is an integral part of the Department of Chinese and Bilingual Studies, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU). It encourages academic research, promotes conversations about translation studies and history, raises the standards of professional training of translators and interpreters, and develops innovative techniques and methodologies for translators and interpreters.

Apart from scholarly work, the Centre also provides professional translation and interpreting services and consultations to other departments of PolyU and the community at large. The Centre is also the designated training centre for the standardised test for translators and interpreters in China, CATTI.
