With the advent of the age of mobile internet, the world has changed at the never-found fast speed. Translation has to follow the changing pace, making itself as a large industry. It cannot be easily implemented with the past practice. It has to go beyond the traditional confinement of translation.On such an occasion, translation engineering comes into being as a new discipline. The education of preparing talents for translation engineering naturally comes into the very spot. Through the literature review and logical deduction as well logical induction, the conceptual framework of the construction of translation engineering education is proposed, and then the detailed teaching content and concrete route are explored as a trying ready for future further research, especially experimental research from academia.
