The objectives of this chapter are three-fold: firstly, it serves as a
literature review for Modules Two and Three. In the first part of the
chapter, existing theories on translation are explored, and issues such as
the quest for equivalence and the problem of untranslatability are discussed.
The second objective of the chapter is to analyze the translation
strategies commonly employed by translators. The analysis in sections 1.8,
1.9 and 1.10 is based on the translation strategies applied in the Chinese
translation of Philip Pullman's The Golden Compass (1995). The syntactic,
semantic and pragmatic structures of the expressions in English and Chinese
are compared and contrasted.
The third objective of the chapter is to give an overview of the basic
concepts of the study of ideology and translation. The politics of
language, the relationships between gender stereotypes and linguistics
forms, as well as the intervention, censorship and manipulation in
translation of children's literature are examined.
