A Co-Training Mode for Civil Engineering Majors Under the Context of Chinese High-Speed Railway Internationalization

Guest Editor Yuantao Teng (Jilin Normal University, Shiping City, China)

China's high-speed rail internationalization has increasingly developed, but the quantity and quality of professional translators are far behind what's required and needed. In order to solve this problem, a co-training mode of cultivate translating talents was proposed. In this paper, the key factors related to training the translation talents of international Civil Engineering (CE) students in Shijiazhuang Tiedao University (STDU) were analyzed´╝îand a framework for a co-training mode of education for CE international students was constructed based on the analysis and investigation. Subsequently the Chinese language proficiency test, Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (HSK 4) results before June 2015 and the employment rate of STDU 2014 were collected. Results demonstrate that the co-training mode between the university (STDU) and overseas railway engineering companies plays an important role in the improvement of professional translation talents. Finally, The new mode of education has proved to be a winwin situation both for the university (STDU) and China Railway Engineering Corporation (CREC) by listing the benefits to both sides, and is helpful to solve the deficiency of professional translation talents in China's high-speed railway internationalization.
