C-E Translation of Buzzwords From the Perspective of Eco-Translatology

Yushan ZHAO, Yuehan ZHAO, Yan LIU


Buzzwords, the popular words and expressions, spread widely among the public, as the comprehensive product of society, culture and language, and it has become a new research subject in recent years. This paper analyzes the C-E translation of buzzwords from the perspective of Eco-translatology. Three-dimensional transformations of Eco-translatology provide a new aspect for us to improve the translation of buzzwords. Targeted readers will understand the translated version of buzzwords as much as possible if transformations were made from linguistic, cultural and communicative dimensions.
