Summer Intensive Translation and Interpretation (SITI) Program


Summer 2018


The Summer Intensive Translation and Interpretation (SITI) Program is a full-time program designed to enhance your English and Chinese fluency and cross-cultural communication skills. Understand Canadian culture as you increase your confidence in translating and interpreting in an English environment.

The SITI Program is held on the beautiful University of British Columbia (UBC) campus where you stay for the duration of the program. UBC is a town within a city, with restaurants, shopping and recreation a short walk from your room. Vancouver is also within easy reach, and you have plenty of opportunities to explore the city with your classmates.

Choose from two immersive streams:

In the four-week Academic Program (SITI AP), increase bilingual fluency and build foundational translation and interpretation skills through classroom work, theory, practice, and cultural experiences. SITI AP is ideal for university students or recent graduates.

The three-week Experiential Program (SITI EP) offers valuable first-hand cultural experiences to practise translation and interpretation skills. Through presentations, seminars, and site visits to local organizations, build your vocabulary and fluency as you learn about Canadian culture and values. SITI EP is suitable for those with all levels of translation and interpretation experience.

Both streams require fluency in English and Chinese.
