跟单考试教材勘误不完全增补(1)

<外贸跟单理论与实务>为全国跟单员考试的统一教材,编写潦草,错误众多,今年即便有随教材附赠的<勘误表>,仍然有许多遗漏.为协助外贸课堂的老师教学,特将各个章节的错误罗列出来,帮助学员们掌握正确的常识.

有学员问我:“如果教材错了的话,我们考试是按什么来答题?”

我的回答是:“放心,教材中的错误,根据经验,由于编写者也没有把握,基本没可能考.如果考的话,请捏着鼻子,忍着恶心地答题吧.只是以后参加工作,可别犯这种低级错误!”

P4 第一章 外贸跟单的基本要求 第一节 外贸跟单概述

原文:“外贸跟单员一词的英文表述有多种,本书使用‘Order Supervisor ’或‘Quality Controller’,其中‘Quality Controller’常见于报纸杂志的招聘启事,简称‘QC’

改正:“QC”的含义是质检员,与跟单员的英文表述相差甚远。国际上通常用Merchandiser(Merchandicer)来表达跟单员这个概念。

PS:以下是一段关于Merchandiser职责的描述,有空再翻译出来:

Typical work activities:

The finer details of the work will vary from company to company and will also depend upon the particular condition. However, work activities will typically include:

1.planning the product range with the buying team;
2.contact with buyers, analysts, stores, suppliers and distributors;
3.working closely with colleagues as part of a departmental team;
4.forecasting production using computer programs, in particular Excel;
5.planning budgets and presenting production forecasts and figures for new ranges to senior managers;
6.controlling stock levels based on forecasts for the season to ensure the business has the optimum amount of stock;
7.managing the performance of the ranges, which involves: analysing every aspect of the best and worst sellers (for example, the best selling price points, colours or styles); ensuring that best sellers are fully potentialised; and keeping an eye on slow sellers, taking action to reduce prices or set promotions as necessary;
8.accompanying buyers on visits to manufacturers to appreciate production processes;
9.meeting with suppliers and managing the distribution of stock, possibly negotiating cost prices with suppliers;
10.identifying production and supply difficulties and dealing with them as and when they occur;
11.managing, training and supervising staff.

  1. 听说你教跟单了,其实偶建议你干脆编部跟单书算了,你的经历应该比那些学院派更能助人子弟。:)
