Interpreting Website and Newssary App

Interpreting Website and Newssary App


– Resources for Interpreting
is a web-based resource for the practice, teaching
and research for interpreting. The creation of this website
was supported by the KE Office of
The University of Hong Kong to promote knowledge exchange. – The website
contains all sorts of information about interpreting. The hallmark of the
website is a bilingual Chinese/English glossary of
terms collected from the news. The glossary database is
the product of the hard work of Dr. Ng and her students
and research assistants over many years, and it is a
non-stop ongoing effort. The glossary database contains
a wide range of vocabulary in both Chinese and English, including words trending in the news. – When I first saw the
website, I was sitting alone in my room and I just said, wow. It’s so complete. It has everything that an interpreter or anyone who teaches interpreting
or anyone who wants to use it for client education would want. – It’s a wonderful contribution for today’s students and practitioners of interpreting and translation between Chinese and English. It’s a really, really wonderful resource, and we welcome it open-handed. Thank you very much for doing this. – This is very useful for my research as well as for my teaching. – This is a one-stop website
that you can never miss. – This website
has made a positive impact on society through knowledge exchange, and Dr. Eva Ng received
the Faculty KE Award for 2016 in recognition of her efforts in promoting knowledge exchange. – To further enhance user experience, a mobile app, Newssary, based
on the glossary database of the website has now been developed. The name Newssary is a blending of the words “news” and “glossary”. – That’s gonna make it
even more accessible for interpreting students
working between English and Chinese or translation
students working between English and Chinese around the world. Bravo HKU and bravo Dr. Eva Ng. – Newssary is
supported by iOS and Android. It allows users to easily search for terms on mobile devices. Users can test their
vocabulary in both languages with the Daily Word Challenge. They can also bookmark
their favourite terms and export the list by email. The new functions also include notification of the latest entries. Newsarry is an exciting deliverable from another KE project of Dr. Eva Ng on which she and her team have been working in the past year. This app is available as a free download. – So, don’t miss out. – Go get it on App Store. – Or Play Store. – It’s free.
