Abstract

Global economy has brought greater need for translators in China. The creation of MTI (Master of Translation and Interpreting) programs is to prepare more professional translators. This makes it necessary to examine the status quo of the professional competence (PC) of MTI students. The study surveyed 844 student translators of seven MTI programs and found that their current state of PC was slightly above the average, and their amount of professional knowledge is far from sufficient though their professional attitudes were satisfactory.
