Thanks for the efforts of Ms. Yuan, the instructor's and Coursera, the course is very good for improving my translation skills. It will be better to share some better translation in a specific thread.

PLEASE state in the presentation that it is necessary to master the Chinese language and that there will be many translations tasks that require to be fluent in both English and Chinese. Many of us did not know it and it makes for a very frustrating experience and course !

I cant continue the course because there is translation examples between English and Chinese, and I dont know Chinese lang.

Please note that this course is intended for those who understand both English and Chinese only. The subtitles are not going to be useful, and you will not be able to complete assignments unless you understand both languages (simultaneously).

Some of the assignment is in Chinese and some parts contain propaganda related to China, which you may want to be aware of. The lecturer speaks English with a Chinese accent, which is fine, but there are spelling errors in the text and questions, making me question the quality of the course material.

All assignments must be submitted on time. Students are at the mercy of their peers in peer review which may or may not happen, making one anxious if the course will ever end. Fortunately, it ended and I am just thankful that it did.

Great course. It helps to print out the assignments, and have those in front of you as you watch the relevant videos. Week 3 assignments were difficult to get done. Helps to have access to a C-E Buddhist dictionary (the free one available in Pleco isn't very useful).

I want to thank Nanjing University for offering this course. It has really given me practical advice to improve my translation skills and technique. I would like to take a more advance version of the translation course, if available.

I can't believe that courses like these come free of charge. This is seriously valuable for someone like me - a freelancer who doesn't currently have the opportunity to have academic education. Thank you so much!

The courses are curated with planned introductions for each unit and sections, and Ms.Yao tries very hard to complement it with related examples and practices,.

However, it can be better to expand the scope and the diversity of practice modules by adding some political, socioeconomic or entertainment & cultural materials to them.
