Dewan Persidangan Universiti, (University Conference Hall)




The development and progress in the field of translation as an academic discipline itself has gained worldwide recognition. Similarly, in the South East Asian region with its diverse cultures and languages, translation practices are also of global standard. However, it is a known fact that most translation theories and approaches depend heavily on researches done by western scholars whose main focus were on the pairing of American-European languages. The varied languages in South East Asian region share certain similarities and differences intra linguistically and extra linguistically. Thus, there is an urgent need to come up with translation theories and approaches which are more suited and appropriate for this region.




The objectives of this seminar are:

  • To explore and discuss relevant theories and approaches used in South East Asian inter-lingual and intra-lingual translations.

  • To create an avenue for researchers and language experts in this South East Asia region to share new discoveries, knowledge and experiences in the field of translation.

  • To raise the standard of translation to the level of a specialized academic discipline among the South East Asian communities.
