Mengting LI, Lijun LI


The publicity texts involve various aspects in external publicity and plays an increasingly important role. This paper takes Xi Jinping’s report at the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China as an example to discuss the practical application of Newmark’s semantic translation and communicative translation theory in the translation of publicity texts. It is summarized that how semantic translation and communicative translation are used in the English translation of publicity texts in this paper so as to provide some practicable suggestions for the English translation of publicity texts.
