Abstract

Translation is a significant activity in cross-cultural and cross-linguistic communication. Translators, as native speakers, are prone to make errors in translation between target language and source language due to both lack of a frame of reference and the general trend of diction based on first-language-oriented input. Thus corpora are used in the study of language contrast and translation studies. Many relevant researches emerge while the study on corpus application in translation teaching for non English majors is not widely available. This paper attempts to study the effect of corpus on translation teaching for non English majors via experimental method and come up with solutions to practical problems in the translation teaching experiment. Conclusion: corpus-based translation teaching model will promote the translation competence, thus significantly improve English Comprehensive application ability.
