Bo LI, Hui LIU


Based on the theory of translation compensation, this paper tends to explore translation strategies of scientific and technological texts, which mainly includes three parts: a brief introduction of translation compensation theory, characteristics of scientific and technological texts and compensation of sci-tech text translation both at linguistic and aesthetic terms. In this way, functional equivalence between the original and target text can be maximumly achieved.
