Research on News Translation From an English-Chinese Comparative Perspective

Zilin WAN


The divergent historical development and customs of Eastern and Western civilizations have led to differences in language, culture, and cognitive paradigms. This paper conducts a comprehensive analysis of the Chinese translation of “Paranoid Politics Goes Viral” in The New York Times, from the perspective of English-Chinese comparison. The analysis covers the lexical and sentence structures level of both languages, including part of speech, connotative words, hypotaxis and parataxis, active and passive voice, topic structure, and cognitive disparities. To address these differences, it is essential to avoid untranslatability and non-equivalence arising from cultural distinctions. Selecting appropriate translation strategies becomes crucial in order to fully utilize the strengths of the target language and accurately convey information to the readers in the target language.
