The main aim of TXICC ( Research Group in Chinese-Catalan/Spanish Translation and Interpreting) is to promote research in the field of Chinese-Spanish/Catalan Translation and Interpreting, as well as in other related fields such as Contrastive Linguistics, Didactics of Chinese as a foreign language, Chinese for specific purposes (language for translators) and Intercultural Communication between these two cultures.

TXICC was officially established as a research group recognized by the UAB in 2007. It was originally formed by all the teaching staff that participated in the Master in Chinese-Spanish Professional Translation and Interpretation, which was offered for the first time during the academic year 2004-2005. In a second stage, group membership changed to include only members whose interests and ongoing research are directly related to the group’s areas of research, whether UAB teaching staff or external members.
