双语新闻:我院学生在河北省英语口译大赛中获佳绩

5月11日,2019年河北省英语口译大赛暨第八届全国英语口译大赛选拔赛在河北师范大学举行。本次大赛由中国翻译协会创业创新中心主办,来自河北师范大学、河北大学、燕山大学等13所高校的77名研究生、本科生参加了比赛。我院2016级本科生赵若琳、李甜畅、王萧、白润平和杨若希5名同学在预赛中表现突出,全部进入复赛。在复赛中,经过激烈角逐,均获得三等奖。这是我院学生参加此项赛事以来取得的最佳成绩。

本次比赛的赛题难度大,参赛学生水平高,多为英语口译方向的翻译专业硕士研究生和翻译专业的本科生,代表了我省学生口译的最高水平。比赛分为英译汉和汉译英两个环节,题目极具挑战性。上午的淘汰赛为英译汉,主题是“墨西哥文化”,学生需要听1分20秒的长度为163个词汇的英语录音并同时做笔记,要求在2-4秒开始进行口译,翻译时长不得超过1分59秒。下午的决赛为汉译英,主题是“虫洞”,文字录音53秒,字数为200字,翻译限时为1分36秒。在比赛中,学生们表现出了良好的口译素养和口译技巧运用能力。

我校参赛学生均为普通英语专业的本科生,在课程设置中仅有一门口译课程(32学时),但在王冬伟、杨青两位老师指导下,通过运用口译记忆方法、口译笔记及公众演讲技巧等,能较准确、流畅地进行汉英互译,在比赛中表现出了交替传译的技巧运用能力和实践能力。学生表示,通过学习口译课程和参加此次比赛,能了解我国基本国情和重大路线、方针和政策,能学习并熟悉交替口译的基本理论,掌握和运用英汉两种语言口译的特点、技巧和基本知识,从而进一步提高语言综合应用能力。口译课程既要学习交替口译的技巧,更重视实践能力的锻炼与提高,旨在使学生能胜任一般外宾日常生活口译,也能担任一般外事活动的口译的工作。同时,通过掌握外贸和商务方面的口译技巧,可以使学生基本具备从事该方面工作的能力。

  今后,学院将加大对于口译课程的投入和重视,从而为学生将来有志从事口译工作或发展为复合型人才奠定基础,以适应新世纪对外语人才的新要求和新挑战。 (作者:王冬伟)

On May 11, 2019, English Interpreting Contest of Hebei Province and the Eighth National English Interpreting Qualification Contest was held in Hebei Normal University. The competition was organized by the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center of the Translators' Association of China. 77 postgraduates and undergraduates from 13 universities including Hebei Normal University, Hebei University and Yanshan University took part in the competition. Zhao Ruolin, Li Tianchang, Wang Xiao, Bai Runping and Yang Ruoxi, undergraduates of our college in 2016, all performed well in the preliminary competition and entered the semi-finals. After fierce competition, all of them won the third prize in the semi-finals. This is the best result our students have achieved since our students took part in this competition.

The contest featured difficult questions and high level of students, most of whom were master's degree students majoring in interpreting and undergraduate students majoring in English translation, representing the highest level of interpretation among students in our province. The contest is divided into two parts: English-Chinese interpretation and Chinese-English interpretation. The knockout contest in the morning is an English-Chinese translation with the theme of "Mexican culture". Students are required to listen to an English recording of 163 words for 1 minute and 20 seconds and take notes at the same time. They are required to start interpreting in 2-4 seconds and the translation time shall not exceed 1 minute and 59 seconds. In the afternoon, the semi-final was to translate from Chinese to English with the theme of "wormhole". The students are required to listen to a Chinese recording of 200 words for 53s and interpret within 1 minute and 36 seconds. During the competition, the students showed a good use of interpreting skills.

The students of our university are all undergraduates majoring in general English, and there is only one interpretation course (32 class hours) in the curriculum. However, under the guidance of instructors Wang Dongwei and Yang Qing, the contestants can translate between Chinese and English accurately and fluently by using the methods of interpreting memory, interpreting notes and public speaking skills. In the competition they have demonstrated the consecutive interpretation skills and the ability, as well as certain practical ability. Students said that by learning the interpreting course and participating in the competition, they can better understand China's basic national conditions and major lines, principles and policies, be familiar with the basic theory of interpretation, master and better apply the interpreting skills and knowledge of English and Chinese languages, so as to further improve the comprehensive language application ability. The interpretation class pays attention not only to the basic interpreting skills, but also to the improvement of practical ability, aiming to enable students to interpret for general foreign guests in daily life, as well as for general foreign affairs activities. Meanwhile, by grasping the interpreting skills in foreign trade and business, the students will be able to work in this area after graduation.

In the future, the college will increase the investment and emphasis on the interpretation courses, so as to lay a foundation for the students to engage in the interpretation work and develop into interdisciplinary talents, meeting the new requirements and challenges for foreign language talents in the new century.
