With the optimization and upgrading of China’s foreign trade, studies on translation of import and export contracts have gradually deepened. However, such studies are not balanced in different fields. The translation of stone export contracts has not received much attention. Guided by the theory of functional equivalence, this study is divided into five chapters. The first chapter briefly explains the background, purpose and importance of the topic. The second chapter focuses on literature review, which is divided into three sections on the definition and the development and the application of the theory, respectively. The third chapter mainly discusses the lexical and syntactic features in the translation of stone contracts. Chapter four discusses the application of functional equivalence in English translation of stone contracts, including lexical equivalence, syntactic equivalence and stylistic pairs. The fifth chapter summarizes the findings. The conclusion of this paper shows that the proper application of functional equivalence in translation is conducive to the accuracy of translation and the transmission of business culture. In translation, the translator should objectively and accurately reproduce the articles in the targeted language. In addition, cultural differences are also an indispensable consideration in this process. This paper also puts forward some countermeasures to the problems existing in the said process. As stone export is a highly professional and complex field, translators need to analyze and deal with the actual situation in practice.
