Translation, Interpreting and Intercultural Communication Research Unit

Translation, Interpreting and Intercultural Communication Research Unit focuses on relationships between translation and culture, legal interpretation, professional standards for translators and corpus-based translation. This aims for the understanding of relationships between communication and translation as well as interpreting on aspects of society, culture and economy. The studies are divided into three groups, i.e. translation, interpreting and intercultural communication. Research topics include translation and culture, translation and literary criticism, demand for translators and interpreters in the Thai labor market, and corpus linguistics in translation studies.
