The Art of Translation calls more attention notbecause it establishes ground for internationalinteraction, and offers an excellent opportunity to

undergo socio-cultural survey of various languagesand their literatures, but also gives an opportunity to establish some kind of relevanceit has in the study area. Broadly speaking, translation turns a text of source language(SL) into a correct and understandable version of target language (TL) without losingthe suggestion of the original. (Adapted from Shiben Raina’s article). Keeping in viewthe importance of Art of Translation, Department of English organized a TranslationCompetition (Urdu to English) for students of BS English Language & Literature on December19, 2013. The activity was inaugurated by Dean FABS, Dr. Syed Muhammad Khair.He encouraged the students by emphasizing the significance of English languagein today’s technological era. He further highlighted the importance of translationskills, and added that in a country like Pakistan where English is the officiallanguage, while Urdu is the National language, and many local languages arealso spoken, students must be able to comprehend a text in SL, and be able toconvert or translate it into the TL. The students were provided with threepassages, and they had to attempt any two of them. This activity gave anopportunity to the students to measure the number of appropriate vocabulary they

have in English and Urdu languages, and thewords that can be used suitably for the translation ofan idea. Meanwhile, it was observed that majorityof the students lacked the ability to find suitableUrdu words due to code switching, and thisphenomenon created hurdles for themwhile translating; but this occurrence shallpave the way for future research. Theenthusiasm of students was witnessedduring the activity with the demand for suchmore events.

Department of Mathematics BUITEMS is flourishingsteadily with emphasis on research activities. Numerousproblems that are encountered in various branches ofscience and engineering are solved scientifically. The Mathematics department is running twoyear MS Mathematics degree program.
