You may have seen the news broadcasting?! News broadcasts often include meetings of state leaders and attendance of various meetings. For foreign friends, what they say is to be translated to the Chinese people. Here's what Beijing Translation Company tells you when translating news.
1. Adding annotative words in translation. News headlines in English newspapers and periodicals often cater to the reading habits of their readers, and because their thinking habits are different from those of Chinese people, the expressions of English news headlines are also different from those of Chinese. Therefore, different principles at home and abroad and the reading psychology of Chinese readers must be fully taken into account in the process of translation, and necessary adaptations should be made to relevant information, cultural background knowledge that may not be familiar with the Chinese people, and expressions that do not conform to the reading habits of domestic readers.
2. Literal or basic literal translation of news headlines. Whether literal translation or free translation is right or wrong is a controversial issue in the translation circles of our country. In translation, we should make full use of our strengths and avoid our weaknesses, depending on the actual situation. However, whether literal or free translation, faithfulness to the content of the original text should be put in the first place.
Thirdly, translation trade-offs should be adopted. Sometimes, when some English headlines are difficult to express their subtle meanings in Chinese due to rhetorical devices or cultural and linguistic differences, it is advisable to translate appropriate Chinese headlines according to the literal meaning of English headlines and news content. In this way, according to the characteristics of Chinese and Chinese news headlines, different grammatical and rhetorical devices can be used to achieve the best results.
These are the explanations on how to translate the news. If you want to travel abroad or meet foreign friends one day, you can choose Beijing Translation Company. We will bring you the best explanations.
