Call For Papers 2nd Issue

The International Journal of Chinese and English Translation & Interpreting (IJCETI) is the first open-access, peer-reviewed international journal devoted to translation & interpreting of the Chinese-English language pair. We welcome innovative explorations and discussions on translation & interpreting theories, training and practice, including those focusing on Chinese and English T&I. The journal publishes two issues per annum (June and December), plus one guest-edited special issue where there is an interest.

For the second issue in 2022, we are calling for submissions on the theme of ‘Language-pair-specific issues in translation and interpreting’. Other articles which do not necessarily address this specific theme are also welcome as usual.

Chinese is known arguably as one of the most difficult languages in second language learning and in translation and interpreting. Some scholars have pointed out language-pair-specific issues in translation and interpreting particularly between Chinese and European languages. In this themed issue, we call for systematic discussion from T&I researchers, trainers and practitioners about but not limited to the following:

  • Typical difficulties in Chinese translation
  • Typical difficulties in Chinese interpreting
  • Grammatical issues (e.g., structural asymmetry) particular to Chinese translation
  • Grammatical issues (e.g., structural asymmetry) particular to Chinese interpreting
  • Pragmatic issues particular to Chinese translation
  • Pragmatic issues particular to Chinese interpreting
  • Cultural issues particular to Chinese translation
  • Cultural issues particular to Chinese interpreting
  • Typical problems that Chinese translation teaching needs to deal with
  • Typical problems that Chinese interpreting teaching needs to deal with
