在中文及雙語學系(本系)推動下,香港理工大學(理大)202297日與中國外文局全國翻譯專業資格(水平)考試(CATTI)項目管理中心簽訂合作協議,成為香港首個獲官方認可的CATTI考點,並由本系負責考場設置及考務管理等事宜。

CATTI2003年推出,是唯一納入中國國家職業資格制度的語言類考試,合格者可獲國家認證的「中華人民共和國翻譯專業資格(水平)證書」。CATTI的翻譯專業資格認證備受全國廣泛認可,去年全年累計報考人數逾35萬,是對參試人員口譯或筆譯雙語互譯能力和水準的評價與認定。

本系自1988年成立以來,一直致力提升本港中英文專業翻譯的水平。除提供與翻譯相關的本科碩士課程外,本系翻譯研究中心亦為CATTI的指定培訓中心,為考生提供中英文的筆譯及口譯訓練。隨著理大成為本港首個CATTI考點,本系將繼續積極培育本地語言及翻譯人才,促進翻譯專業在本地及國內的發展。

首場在本港舉行的中英文筆譯及口譯考試將於20221156日舉行,並於即日起至1010日接受考生報名。詳情請瀏覽https://www.polyu.edu.hk/cbs/cts/hk/catti/

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) signed a cooperation agreement with the China Accreditation Test for Translators and Interpreters (CATTI) Management Center of the China International Communications Group (CICG) on 7 September 2022. Facilitated by the Department of Chinese and Bilingual Studies (CBS), the agreement marks PolyU as the first official CATTI test center in Hong Kong, and CBS is responsible for the management and organization of the test.

Launched in 2003, CATTI is the only language test incorporated into China’s national vocational qualification system. Candidates who pass the test will obtain a Qualification Certificate of Proficiency issued by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security (MOHRSS) and CICG. The test is designed to access the proficiency and competence of candidate translators and interpreters, and it is widely recognised by employers throughout the country. Last year, over 350,000 candidates took the test.

Since 1988, CBS has been committed to uplifting the professional standard of Chinese-English translation in Hong Kong. We offer undergraduate and postgraduate courses of translation, and our Centre for Translation Studies is designated to provide training for the English-Chinese translation and interpreting test in CATTI. With PolyU organising the CATTI test in Hong Kong, we will continue to cultivate talents in languages and translation, and promote the development of the translation industry in Hong Kong and the Mainland.

The first English-Chinese translation and interpreting test in Hong Kong will be held during 5-6 November 2022. Applications are welcome until 10 October 2022. For details, please visit https://www.polyu.edu.hk/cbs/cts/en/catti/.
