Farmed salmon is a kind of fish rich in protein and fat, which has high edible value. Marine salmon muscle dry samples contain 55.44% crude protein, 39.42% crude fat, 5.07% crude ash, 18 amino acids, 32.22% total amino acid content, and 13.90% essential amino acid (EAA) content. Minerals and trace elements with important physiological functions are a medium-to-high-grade ingredient and an important component of international food import and export trade. In international trade, the cross-cultural nature of food English translation determines the complexity of translation. The lack or conflict of cultural information will increase the difficulty for translators and cause unequal transmission of culture. In order to solve the cultural non-equivalent transfer in the process of business English translation, the author proposes ways to cultivate translators' cross-cultural awareness and the appropriate use of pragmatic transfer methods to improve cultural equivalence in business English translation.
