The Project (Japanese into English) can take any form as long as it is deemed to enhance students’ research specific knowledge of the Japanese language. The project needs to be approved by the student’s supervisor in consultation with the JAPANESE 704 coordinator. The project can be: an annotated translation of literature used in the Honours thesis; summaries of literature used in the thesis, a translation project for students from the Postgraduate Diploma in Translation, etc.

The workload of the 704 Project should roughly be an equivalent of producing a 2000-word research essay in English (30 hours).
