On Translating Chinese Proverbs or Idioms in the Cross-Cultural Perspective
Translating Chinese idioms is regarded as one of the greatest challenges, because Chinese idioms are a reflection of the rich cultural heritage of China, and most of them are not always easy to understand in lack of Chinese cultural background. This paper discusses two strategies of translating Chinese idioms. In order to introduce Chinese cultures to the foreigners, we prefer to the strategy of foreignization based on keeping to the functional equivalence in the cross-cultural perspective.
Key words: Chinese proverbs or idioms; Cross-cultural communication
