|Title||Translation students' use and evaluation of online resources for Chinese-English translation at the word level|
|Authors||Xu, M. and Wang, C.|
This empirical study is aimed to investigate how translation students in Chinese universities are introduced to, use, and evaluate online resources in Chinese-English translation. One hundred translation students were randomly selected from a leading foreign languages university in China and were asked to complete a questionnaire. It was found that: (1) translation students now rely more on electronic resources than non-electronic ones in their translation practice, the underlying reason being convenience rather than accuracy; and (2) with online resources, translation efficiency is improved. It is hoped that the current study will fill, to some extent, the research gap in the application of online resources in translation practice, and therefore shed some new light on translator training.
