The USJ team won the second-place prize in the “Special Award for Macao Universities Teams” in the 4th Chinese-Portuguese World Translation Contest.



In order to foster the development of Chinese-Portuguese translation talents and to strengthen the relationship between China and Portuguese-speaking countries, the Higher Education Bureau of the Macao SAR Government and the Macao Polytechnic Institute jointly organised the 4th Chinese-Portuguese World Translation Contest. This year’s World Translation Contest attracted 211 teams and more than 500 participants from 50 universities from Asia, Africa, Europe and South America. The award ceremony took place online on September 23rd at 17:00 Macau time, due to the epidemic.

Prof. Lídia Zhou Mengyuan, Head of Department of Languages and Culture of Faculty of Arts and Humanities led three of our students, Catarina Choi Weng Kuan, Ana Tam Wai U and Tomaz Medvedec Vilela Dionísio, to participate in the competition. The team won the second-place prize in the “Special Award for Macao Universities Teams” among the more than 200 teams. 

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities of USJ offers a bachelor’s degree in Portuguese-Chinese Translation Studies and a Master Degree in Lusophone Studies in Linguistics and Literature. The university and FAH will continue to focus on the development of the Portuguese majors, in order to contribute more to diversified bilingual talents training for Macau.
