    What does 'student accountant' mean?

    What does 'student accountant' mean in the sentence below? Person who is training to become an accountant and is doing some accounting(accountancy) as part of their training, like a student teacher, lawyer, nurse, etc?

    About 20 per cent of student accountants are women.

    I don't understand your problem. You gave the answer yourself: 'a person who is training to become an accountant'.

    Re: What does 'student accountant' mean?

    Thank you so much, Rover. The sentence is taken from COLLINS COBUILD ENGLISH USAGE. The Chinese version of this dictionary translated this phrase as 'students of accountancy'. I doubted the translation and thought 'student accountants' doesn't equal ' 'students of accountancy'. I wanted to make sure I was right in thinking so. So I asked the above question.

    "Students of accountancy" translates to "accounting students", like nursing students, law students, etc.

    Re: What does 'student accountant' mean?

    Dear moderators,

    These days I wanted to thank the people here for giving me great help, and clicked again and again on the 'thank' and 'like' icons, but very often they just wouldn't work. I don't know why. A problem with my own computer? or anything else?
