The Hong Kong Translation Society
Incorporated in October 1971, the Hong Kong Translation Society is a non-profit making professional body with the object to enhance the standard and professionalism of translation (both oral and written) in Hong Kong. It became a registered charitable organization with the Hong Kong Government. It has become a member association of the Translators Association of China since 1986 and of the Federation Internationale des Traducteurs since 1988.
The Society has been active in the cultural circle organizing multifarious activities to promote translation, including featured seminars and talks, territory-wide translation talks in joint presentation with the Hong Kong Public Libraries, regional and international translation conferences in association with local and overseas tertiary institutions, co-organizing an annual translation competition, and administering a scholarships scheme since 1991.
The Society regularly publishes a Bulletin and a refereed journal Translation Quarterly and has released a dozen translation anthologies, monographs and conference proceedings.
