Abstract

Translation services play a bridging role in international exchanges and cooperation in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. Therefore, studying the need for translation talents is of great significance to promote the development of language services and improve the quality of international cooperation in the Bay Area. This paper analyzes the current situation and changing trend of the demand for translation talents from multiple perspectives through a self-designed questionnaire. A total of 9 translation companies in Guangzhou, Zhuhai and Shenzhen were selected to carry out a questionnaire survey. Through data analysis, this paper examines and analyzes the requirements of the talent market in the Bay Area for translation talents in terms of professional experience, professional competence and professional quality. The findings are as follows: 1. Demands for the post of translators tend to be diversified; 2. The quality of translation talents and professional qualification requirements are gradually standardized; 3. The application of machine translation technology is becoming popular.
