As an interpreter of Beijing translation company, improving English translation ability is something many translators are trying to do. Do you know what adjustments are needed to improve English translation ability? Here is a detailed introduction:
Strengthen their own basic literacy. The so-called basic literacy refers to the basic conditions that a translator must have, that is, the basic requirements for a translator. In addition to the noble "translation style of morality" and the serious and meticulous scientific attitude, the translator must have three qualities: a certain level of English, a high level of Chinese culture and a wealth of professional knowledge. Translation practice shows that the higher the quality of these three aspects is, the more smoothly the translation can be completed. As for English level, we should pay attention to lay a solid foundation, expand our vocabulary and read widely. It's better to train in listening, speaking, reading, writing and translation at the same time, so as to improve our English level faster than single attack translation. In the aspect of Chinese accomplishment, we should strengthen the study of grammar, logic, rhetoric and other knowledge, read more, write more and practice revising more. In terms of professional knowledge, we should strive to be proficient in our own business and know more about relevant professional knowledge; we should often read domestic and foreign nursing journals to grasp the development trend of the discipline.
Practice in translation. Translation is a creative language activity with strong practicality. It's the same as wanting to learn to swim but not to go into the water to improve translation ability without practice. Of course, practice should also be scientific. If beginners do not have expert advice, it is best to first find some materials that meet their own level of difficulty and have Chinese translation for translation practice. When his own translation is finished, it is compared with that of others. First of all, we should see whether we are accurate in understanding, and then we should see whether our expression conforms to the Chinese language habits and find out the shortcomings. With the improvement of the level, we can find some relatively simple articles about the basic knowledge of this specialty for translation, and then gradually transition to the translation of English nursing literature. Adhere to the principle of step-by-step translation and submission, and you will be fruitful. If time permits, it's better to insist on doing some translation every day. With the passage of time, there will be progress.
Learn from others and be creative. On the one hand, beginners of translation can read more English and Chinese reading materials or English books with Chinese annotations; on the other hand, they can find out the corresponding original text according to the source of a translation provided by translation magazines, and then carry out comparative reading. Through comparative analysis, we can find out our own gap, learn and absorb the strengths of others in understanding the spirit of the original text and translation expression, and promote the improvement of translation ability. If you choose your own materials for English translation, when you encounter problems that are difficult to solve, you should be open-minded and ask others for advice. In addition, reading some books about translation skills often is also helpful to improve the translation ability. At the same time, we should have the spirit of innovation. In the process of translation, we should neither stick to the translation provided by others nor be restricted by the rules and regulations formed in the past.
