Abstract


The continuous development of computer information technology has brought about many changes in people’s life. At present, the computer-aided translation technology (abbreviated as CAT hereafter), being a kind of important auxiliary method, has been widely used in software localization and the translation of scientific works. This realistic need has aroused more and more attention to the development and use of CAT tools. Using the computer to assist teaching was first initiated in the USA in the 1950’s and then widely spread all over the world. Until recently, an increasing number of teachers get to know its great use, and try to apply it to the process of teaching. In China the application of CAT in translation teaching is still at the initial stage. In this paper, the author focuses on the present situation of the adoption of CAT technology in translation teaching in China. This paper conducted a survey to investigate people’s understanding over it from teachers’ perspective and existing problems in its adoption in translation teaching.
