The Editor-in-Chief and the Deputy Editor-in-Chief Invited to Make Speeches in the Conference
From July 23 to 25, 2021, the Seminar on Promoting Chinese Culture under the Background of the Belt and Road Initiative and the Forum on Exchanges of Applying for the Chinese Academic Translation Projects was successfully held at the International Academic Exchange Center of Hainan University. Professor Andrew L. Chiang, editor-in-chief of APJHSS and executive vice president of the International Association for Interdisciplinary Humanities and Social Sciences Research, was invited to attend the conference and delivered a keynote speech entitled "Academic translation should follow the 'Xin, Da Ya' (meaning Faithfulness, Expressiveness and Elegance)" standard: Take Yulun as an example". Professor Andrew L. Chiang's lecture starts with the two questions of "whether academic translation needs standards" and "whether there are standards for academic translation", and points out that the "Xin, Da, Ya" standard is a profound understanding and theoretical summary based on Yan Fu's academic translation practice, which coincides with the current requirements of Chinese academic translation. Professor Andrew L. Chiang discusses the mistranslation, missing translation, and addition of the Chinese version of Walter Lippmann's Public Opinion published by Peking University Press, and provides the translation as a reference.
During the conference, Dr. Xia Ningman, deputy editor-in-chief of APJHSS introduced the purpose, featured columns and requirements for submissions of APJHSS.
