With the continuous development of the global economy, politics and culture, the relationship between science and technology and human cognition is becoming closer and closer. Therefore, more and more attention has been paid to the studies of translating technical English. As an important part of technical English, the translation of technical English vocabulary into Chinese has attracted much attention. From the new perspective of cognition and taking the theory of conceptual integration as the core theory, this paper uses the research methods of qualitative analysis and quantitative analysis to study the technical English vocabulary and its strategies of Chinese translation. Based on the theory of conceptual integration, this paper attempts to propose that the cognition model should be integrated properly and rationally using the concept of language translation in the translation of technical English vocabulary. By studying the translation of technical English vocabulary, international exchanges and cooperation in science and technology between different countries are strengthened, which helps translators improve the quality of translation and achieve effective translation.
