高岸明在致辭中指出,全球抗疫期間,亞太翻譯工作者的不懈努力為亞太各國的疫情防控提供了強有力的語言支撐,以實際行動連接起亞太抗疫信息交流的紐帶,贏得了廣泛的尊重與認可。他提出當前疫情的影響還在持續,亞太翻譯仍然是助力亞太疫情防控,化解隔閡與誤解,促進各國文明交流互鑒的重要力量。由此他向亞太翻譯界提出四點建議:一是團結協作,凝聚亞太抗疫共識,保護我們共同的家園,共建人類命運共同體;二是抓住機遇,加強翻譯人才隊伍建設,尤其是醫療衛生領域翻譯人才和應急服務翻譯人才的培養;三是開拓創新,推動行業發展,利用此次危機帶來的機遇進行翻譯行業調整;四是加強亞太翻譯論壇聯合委員會機制建設,加強亞太區域內翻譯機構和翻譯工作者的交流互鑒和經驗分享,共同推動亞太翻譯的繁榮發展。

國際譯聯主席凱文·夸克表示,病毒無國界,疫情無偏見。疫情的快速蔓延讓我們認識到,這是一場全人類共同的危機。此時此刻,我們必須團結一心,守望相助,共同應對這一全球性的挑戰。長久以來,翻譯工作者可能不太擅長在一些關鍵領域與區域內或全球的其他組織一道協作,全球疫情防控為此提供了良好契機,翻譯工作者需抓住機會,凝聚共識、團結合作,在抗擊新冠疫情的同時促進翻譯行業發展。

Bringing together the Asia-Pacific translation and interpreting community to combat COVID-19

The Asia-Pacific Translation and Interpreting Webinar on Combating COVID-19 was held on May11,2020. The forum was co-organized by the Joint Committee of the Asia-Pacific Translation and Interpreting Forum (APTIF) and the Translators Association of China (TAC), with the theme of "bringing together the Asia-Pacific translation and interpreting community to combat COVID-19". Gao Anming, chair of the APTIF Joint Committee & vice president and editor-in-chief of China International Publishing Group, and Kevin Quirk, president of International Federation of Translators (FIT), among other representatives of relevant translation and interpreting organisations in the Asia-Pacific region, addressed the forum.

Gao Anming pointed out in his speech that, at a time of crisis, the Asia-Pacific translation and interpreting (T&I) community came out boldly and offered timely help, supporting the battle against the virus with their expertise in an all-round manner, including T&I and language technologies. The T&I community has been acting as the link in anti-epidemic information exchanges. Their unremitting efforts and hard work have been widely recognized and respected. He also noted that, as the impact of the epidemic lingers on, the Asia-Pacific T&I community remains a major force in supporting epidemic prevention and control in the region, avoiding misunderstanding, as well as promoting exchanges and mutual learning among nations. For these reasons, he put forward four proposals: 1) maintain close coordination and build consensus on fighting COVID-19 in the Asia-Pacific region so as to safeguard our common home and build a community of shared future; 2) seize the opportunity to improve the education and training of translators and interpreters, especially the training of language professionals for health care and emergency services; 3) be innovative and take the opportunity arising from the crisis to adjust and consolidate the T&I industry; and 4) strengthen the communication mechanism of the APTIF Joint Committee, with the aim to enhance mutual learning and experience sharing among the Asia-Pacific T&I community, and promote the prosperity of T&I industry in the Asia-Pacific region.

Kevin Quirk said that, the coronavirus, as you are all aware, knows no boundaries, does not respect international borders and makes no distinction as regards who it may affect. In short, the rapid spread of COVID-19 worldwide means we are all in this together. And we do need to counter it by coming together and pooling our resources. What we are not always good at is working together with other associations at a regional or even global level to focus on key areas where we face similar challenges. I think there is no better opportunity for us to stand together than the situation we are facing now. Countering the spread of the COVID-19 virus is one prime example where we do need to pool our resources.

Yang Ping, deputy secretary-general of TAC & FIT council member, read out the "Initiative to pool the strength of the Asia-Pacific translation and interpreting community to combat COVID-19" on behalf of the forum. The initiative calls upon translators and interpreters in the Asia-Pacific region to come together to accomplish their mission through providing both language and intellectual support in fighting COVID-19; bridge the language gap and promote mutual understanding; help promote people-to-people connectivity and contribute to peace, development, stability and prosperity of the world; and do their part to help create a brighter future for the T&I community in the Asia-Pacific region.

Translation experts, scholars and entrepreneurs from 10 countries and regions, including Australia, China, Hong Kong (China), Iraq, Macao (China), Malaysia, Myanmar, New Zealand, South Korea and the United Kingdom participated in the video conference. They held extensive and in-depth discussions and experience-sharing on the role of translators and interpreters in the fight against the epidemic and on how to better unite the Asia-Pacific T&I community for this purpose.

It is the first time for the APTIF Joint Committee to organise an online forum since its establishment in 2016. This event is of great significance for innovating the mechanism of exchanges among APTIF members, mobilising the Asia-Pacific T&I community to contribute to the fight against the epidemic, and promoting exchanges and cooperation among the Asia-Pacific countries and regions.
