Thai-Chinese Translation Teaching, Theories of Translation, Translation teaching method


This article focuses on the "learning" of students in Thai-Chinese translation teaching. A total of 122 valid questionnaires were collected from three grades of Chinese students majoring in Thai at Huachiew Chalermprakiet University. After the induction and analysis of the data, the following findings were obtained: 1. Most students do not have a good grasp of theories of translation. 2. Most students will not read through the original text before translation and will not proofread after translation. 3. Most students think that translation skills are not very helpful to their translation work. These findings have certain significance for both the "teaching" of teachers and the "learning" of students in Thai-Chinese translation teaching. For students, they should strengthen the study of translation theory knowledge, understand the original text before translation, and proofread after translation. For teachers, they should guide students to apply the theoretical knowledge to translation practice, help students form good proofreading habits, and require students to summarize and think in time, help students improve their translation ability.
