Abstract: This paper discusses the role of translation in English for Special Purposes teaching from a pedagogical perspective. Although the traditional "Grammar-Translation Method" is widely criticized, translation is an important means in foreign language teaching and learning, and it receives more and more attention. Therefore, translation should not be regarded as a process of transferring the text from one language to another, but be seen and treated as a comprehensive activity which includes reading, writing, speaking and listening. Teaching a foreign language is teaching how that language is used in diversified contexts. As a subject of teaching professional knowledge, English for specific purposes should pay more attention to the use of terminology, language stucture and culture information in different contexts. Through the process of translation, students can better understand the structural and cultural differences in different languages, thus promoting communication more effectively.
