    Translation plays an instrumental to facilitate bilingual professional communication and cooperation. With increasing trade between Australia and China, there is a growing demand for high-quality translation services for both countries. This workshop is funded by an Australia-China Council Award. This project promotes international collaboration around digital education innovation in specialised professional translation between Chinese and English. It is based on the long-term productive collaboration among leading scholars of Chinese translation studies from four research-intensive universities in the Asia-Pacific, University of Sydney, National Taiwan University, University of Macau and Beijing Aeronautics and Astronomy University. This project successfully developed a cross-national translation education innovation network which will continue to foster our future collaboration in developing project-oriented translation teaching and training components, with a view to innovating Australian Chinese translation and bilingual communication education.
