The muscles of the sea bass fish are rich in nutrients, and the contents of crude fat, crude protein and amino acids are high. The content of aspartic acid, glutamic acid, tryptophan, leucine, lysine, and arginine in the muscle of perch is significantly higher than that of other fish. This article analyzes the problems in English translation of sea bass muscle nutrition and food company profiles. The perch muscle contains water (54.2%) and crude protein (71.8%). The translation of a company profile is different from other text translations. In the translation, word-for-word parity cannot be pursued. Instead, an appropriate translation method should be selected, deleted, added, or rewritten according to the characteristics of the English company profile and the expectations of the target language readers. In addition, this article puts forward corresponding countermeasures and suggestions for the problems in the translation of food company profiles, hoping to help food companies and even the entire Chinese company to continuously improve the translation quality of their profiles and establish a good external image. Translators should strive to improve their bilingual and bicultural abilities so as to meet the needs of effective communication in different cultural environments.
