Hi. In Shanghai there is a company called Baoshan Iron & Steel Co., Ltd., whch boasts of a research institute.

Question: what should I call the head of the research institute?
Dean? Director? President?

Thank you.

    You should refer to the head of the research institute by whatever title he or she has chosen to use.

    The simplest thing to do is contact the company and ask. ;)

    Thank you. But they don’t speak English. Actually I’m doing a translation of a letter of appointment and I need to translate the title from Chinese into English.

    Of the three you originally suggested, Director is the most likely.

    Or you could post the relevant bit of the letter in the Chinese forum and ask for a translation. ;)
