- Global integration calls for more efficient language translation techniques, where English-Chinese translation enjoys a higher priority. Practically, the mastery of vocabulary is of great challenge to translators, and this paper focuses on the important translation skill of functional shifting of word classes to flexibly and sufficiently solve vocabulary problem so as to transmit messages exactly and make translation process economical. This paper, on the basis of translation teaching practice, explores the causes of functional shifting of word classes from the perspective of linguistic economics, and summarizes the application laws of functional shifting phenomenon, in order to improve the idiomaticity and accuracy of translation work.
