A Study on Foreignizing Translation of Culture-Loaded Words in Chinese Food Culture

Meixin QUAN


Chinese food culture is rich and colorful. It is not only the axis of the Eastern food culture, but also benefits the whole world and shines in the world culture. With the development of tourism, cultural exchanges have become more frequent, and the pursuit of food in China and the West has also risen to a higher level. Therefore, translating food culture-loaded words accurately can not only promote international cultural exchanges but also further enhance the international competitiveness of Chinese food culture. This paper is composed of four chapters. Chapter One makes a general introduction to Chinese food culture and foreignizing translation. Chapter Two is a detailed analysis of the application of foreignizing translation in culture-loaded words. Chapter Three shows the prospect of the translation of culture-loaded words. Chapter Four is the conclusion of this paper, which summaries the importance of translating culture-loaded words in Chinese food culture.
