Abstract

In the ever-expanding power market, the demand of technical translators in power sector enlarges. However, the imbalance between supply and demand in the power market causes problems. To solve these problems, this paper proposes to establish a power corpus used for cultivating translators majoring in both English and electricity-related subjects. After a brief introduction of corpus, this paper expounds the characteristics of and difficulties of electric power translation, presents the design of corpus according to these features, thus helping cultivate power translators with academic and practical skills. The corpus can be used by translators with electrical-related background to polish their languages and English majors to grasp basic knowledge of electric sector. The corpus can find solutions to most problems, but it still requires continuous improvements on the basis of user testing.
