This paper analyzes the current situation of corpus-based translation teaching, and highlights the necessity and advantages of using corpora to facilitate translation teaching in vocational colleges in China. The development of corpus not only provides an unprecedented wide range of text materials for language research, but also promotes further development of various research fields of linguistics. The teaching research based on corpus is conducive to expanding and deepening translation research, promoting translation practice and improving the quality of translation and translation teaching. This research also applies a corpus-based online translation teaching and learning platform in translation courses of a vocational college and summarizes a “data-driven” mode of translation teaching and learning assisted by corpora.
