The Chinese/English Political Interpreting Corpus (CEPIC): A new electronic resource for translators and interpreters

Research output: Chapter in book/report/conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

The Chinese/English Political Interpreting Corpus (CEPIC) is a new electronic and
open access resource developed for translators and interpreters, especially those
working with political text types. Over 6 million word tokens in size, the online
corpus consists of transcripts of Chinese (Cantonese & Putonghua) / English political speeches and their translated and interpreted texts. It includes rich metadata and is POS-tagged and annotated with prosodic and paralinguistic features that are of concern to spoken language and interpreting. The online platform of the CEPIC features main functions including Keyword Search, Word Collocation and Expanded Keyword in Context, which are illustrated in the paper. The CEPIC can shed light on online translation and interpreting corpora development in the future.
