Translation, a process of changing the expression from a relatively unfamiliar way to a relatively familiar way, is an important means to enhance and promote the development of human social communication, including the translation of languages, texts, graphics and symbols. Here CCJK introduces you the employment prospects and directions of translation major.


With the increasingly frequent communication with the world and the increase of China’s international status in recent years, no matter where a international conference is held, Chinese and translators are essential .

全国现有相关从业人员 50 万,其中职业翻译 4 万多人,受过专业训练的翻译人才则更少。目前国内市场最紧缺的翻译人才,是不仅语言能力强,而且对专业技术也非常精通的专业型技术类笔译人才和同声传译人才。

There are five hundred thousands translation practitioners, including only forty thousands professional translators and much less translation talents who have received professional training. At present, the most needed translation talents in domestic market are those professional and skilled translators and simultaneous interpreters who own high language competence and are very proficient in professional skills.

中国的翻译服务市场正在急速膨胀。目前各类专业翻译公司注册企业有 3000 多家,以咨询公司、翻译社等名义注册而实际承揽翻译业务的公司更有数万家之多。仅 在深圳,注册的翻译公司就有数百家。翻译服务队伍不足仍然是困扰翻译产业的一大难题,据不完全统计,翻译从业人员可能达到 100 万人,但即使如此,现有的 翻译队伍仍无法满足巨大的市场需求。

In China, the translation service market is expanding rapidly. Currently, there are more than 3000 registered professional translation and tens of thousands of companies registered in the names of consulting corporation and translation agency but actually engaged in translation business. In Shenzhen alone, the number reaches several hundreds. The shortage of translation service teams is still a challenge faced by this industry . As shown by incomplete statistics, the number of translation practitioners may reach one million, but even so, the current number of professional translators is still insufficient to meet the huge market demand.


First, less translators are proficient in specific expertise, and talents who are capable of accurately understanding the source text and perfectly mastering the language are also very rare.


Second, translation talents generally work in only a few relatively developed cities and government departments, therefore, the coverage of translation services is not wide enough.


Third, the purity of Chinese has been greatly challenged by Internet language. Chinese, especially the young translators are relatively poor in the ability of understanding Chinese deeply. Outsiders generally believed that it is more easier to translate foreign languages to Chinese, but actually not many translators could do this well.


So, we think that the current translation industry still has a high plasticity and although the industry is far behind that in some foreign countries, it has great potential to develop. Therefore, translation major graduates own bright career prospects.
