Chinese Culture in English Translation of Agriliterature
China is a large agricultural country, developing fast in agriscience (agricultural science). However, the translation of agriliterature (agricultural literature) and its study lag far behind. Eco-translatology, describing the process of translating as Adaption and Selection, offers the guide to the translation of this field. In this paper, a study on the translation of agriliterature is performed with focus on the influence of Chinese culture from the perceptive of eco-translatology, from which implications and suggestions are derived for translators, scholars and scientists concerned.
