The logo represents the scope of our work. “RCTS” placed in the middle is the acronym for Research Centre for Translation Studies. The color Red is preferred for its boldness and popularity in the Chinese culture and to match the color of CWU’s logo. The two arrows forming a flowing circle stand for translation based on cross-cultural concepts and the decoding-encoding process between two language cultures. The dark blue is meant to call to mind the seriousness of practice and research in translation studies, which are our two principal endeavors.
