Joining WFU’s Global Branding Efforts

Dongdong Yang and Meiling Yu, two first-year ITS graduate students, have joined WFU’s The Media, a student-run digital media group that works to “add to the global branding of Wake Forest University” using “student-produced videos, interviews and e-books, offer[ing] a way for potential students to learn about the university from students already there.”

Dongdong Yang and Meiling will contribute to WFU branding addressing the Chinese communities around the world, mainly via the Wechat platform, a Chinese social media application. Their work includes the translation of WFU news from English to Chinese, setting up a Chinese-English WFU term-base, building translation memory, and interviews with senior administrators and professors across the WFU campus.
