In the era of globalization, the localization industry has grown stronger. Through the literature review research toward this market at home and the personnel training status in domestic universities and colleges, it is found that there are few companies with real localization services, and there are only a handful of universities that really offer localized translation majors or related courses. The lack of localized professional education has put the domestic localized ecological chain in a tricky position. The high cost for a company to foster an employee in this regard from scratch after he graduates calls for universities to shoulder the responsibility and train students on campus. Therefore, school-enterprise cooperation is the sole way to cultivate localized translation talents.
