Trans – Purpose of Translation part II

These are the works which, in principle, should be retranslated for each generation, where the universal outweighs the cultural.

Translate or Not: Repetition in Literary Translation

In both English and Chinese literary works, there are many repetitions: repetition of words, repetition of phrases, and even repetition of sentences.

Translate or not, that’s the question.
