Lost in Translation zwischen Peking und London Die junge Chinesin Zhuang reist zum ersten Mal in den Westen und taucht in eine fremde Welt ein. Sprache und Umgangsformen, Essen und Trinken, Liebe und Sex – alles ist befremdlich, überraschend und manchmal unbegreiflich. Ebenso amüsante wie erhellende Missverständnisse verbinden sich zu einem rasanten Verwirrspiel zwischen Ost und West und Mann und Frau. Ein außergewöhnliches Lesevergnügen! Als Zhuang in London ankommt, fühlt sie sich vollkommen verloren. Ihre Eltern haben sie in den Westen geschickt, damit sie Englisch lernt. Doch es ist nicht nur die fremde Sprache, die ihr Mühe macht. Sie sieht sich mit unfreundlichen Taxifahrern, ungenießbarem Essen und seltsamen Umgangsformen konfrontiert. Unbekannte Wörter, ungewöhnliche Begebenheiten und verblüffende Beobachtungen hält sie in einem kleinen Notizbuch fest, das zum Rettungsanker im Meer der Missverständnisse wird. Geborgen fühlt sich Zhuang nur im Kino – dort begegnet sie schließlich auch der Liebe. Doch im Westen erweist sich diese als ebenso kompliziert wie der Alltag. Xiaolu Guo inszeniert den Kulturschock erhellend und voller Witz. „Kleines Wörterbuch für Liebende“ ist ein kluges, unterhaltsames Verwirrspiel um kulturelle Unterschiede und nicht miteinander zu vereinbarende Lebensformen. Zugleich ist es eine zärtliche, bittersüße Liebesgeschichte.

News Framing through English Chinese translation

Author: Nancy Xiuzhi Liu
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781351397674
Release Date: 2018-11-20
Genre: Foreign Language Study

News Framing Through English-Chinese Translation provides a useful tool to depict how Chinese news translation can be examined in the era of globalization. The author has integrated framing theory in journalism studies with translation studies and developed a new theoretical model/framework named Transframing. This interdisciplinary model is pioneering and will make theoretical and conceptual contributions to translation studies. This book aims to reveal ideological, sociocultural and linguistic factors creating media discourse by examining Chinese media discourse, in comparison to its counterpart in English. Through the analysis of both quantitative and qualitative methods, it is concluded that the transframing model can be applied to interpreting, describing, explaining as well as predicting the practice of news translation.

Thinking Chinese Translation is a practical and comprehensive course for advanced undergraduates and postgraduate students of Chinese. Thinking Chinese Translation explores the ways in which memory, general knowledge, and creativity (summed up as ‘schema’) contribute to the linguistic ability necessary to create a good translation. The course develops the reader’s ability to think deeply about the texts and to produce natural and accurate translations from Chinese into English. A wealth of relevant illustrative material is presented, taking the reader through a number of different genres and text types of increasing complexity including: technical, scientific and legal texts journalistic and informative texts literary and dramatic texts. Each chapter provides a discussion of the issues of a particular text type based on up-to-date scholarship, followed by practical translation exercises. The chapters can be read independently as research material, or in combination with the exercises. The issues discussed range from the fine detail of the text, such as punctuation, to the broader context of editing, packaging and publishing translations. Major aspects of teaching and learning translation, such as collaboration, are also covered.
