Jenny Wong is Assistant Professor in the Division of Humanities and Social Sciences at Beijing Normal University – Hong Kong Baptist University, United International College. She teaches translation and applied ethics. Prior to joining UIC, she taught commercial translation at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and media translation at the Open University of Hong Kong.

She began her career in the financial industry having earned her first degree in finance. After realizing where her real passion lies – languages, translation and cultures - she made a decisive career shift to study translation in the United Kingdom and has since then served in multinational companies and conglomerates including BUPA and Philips Electronics as in-house writer. Her research interests in the study of Bible and English literature grew out of her two postgraduate degrees: MA in Translating and Interpreting (Newcastle, UK) and MA in Christian Studies (CUHK).
