Abstract
This research, in the light of the current situation of translation education and its research in China, attempts to conduct a study on the market needs and MTI course design. To provide an objective insight into requirements of translation companies for prospective translators, a survey of translation companies has been conducted. The results show that the existing MTI course design could not completely meet the demand of translation market. Problems such as insufficiency of language enhancement courses, over-emphasis of translation theories, and shortage of practice-oriented and computer-aided courses come out to be the most serious ones. Therefore, based on the studies of some scholars in China on the translators' knowledge structure, the present research proposes a framework to the innovation of the present MTI course design, which includes four aspects, namely preparatory courses, practice-oriented translation courses, specialized translation courses, and computer-aided translation courses.
