- With the development of big data technology, the application of corpora to translation studies and translator education has drawn the attention of more scholars and instructors. Although translation studies by way of DIY(“Do-It-Yourself”) corpora have been carried out, their application to translator education requires more exploration. This study demonstrates that DIY bilingual translation corpora and monolingual comparable corpora targeted at translator education are of great value in promoting the effects of translator education, making translation students sensitive to the differences between Chinese and English and raising their cross-cultural communication consciousness. The study proves that the application of corpora can be a feasible approach to translator education.
