Marine Electrical and Electronic Professional English (ESP) is a core course for marine electrical and electronic engineering in maritime colleges and universities, and a required subject for the Certificate of Competency of Marine ETO (Marine Electro-technical Officers) in sea going ships. This paper establishes a 1 million word corpus of marine electrical and electronic English, which represents this particular professional English. The author applies this corpus to translation teaching: professional vocabulary is retrieved by computer, various translations and usages of professional vocabulary are explained in detail according to the contextual adaptation theory. Different original English materials about the same content can be retrieved through the corpus, and students can learn translation by comparison.
