On the English Translation of Journalistic Hot Words from the Perspective of Skopos Theory

1 Introduction

Along with acceleration of globalization and increases in cultural exchanges, Journalistic Hot Words (JHWs) in news have been more widely spread both domestically and abroad. Because JHWs take most essential role to transfer the country’s new trends of political and social issues, the precise translation of JHWs is much more demanding than before. What’s more, as authentic and effective English learning materials, accurate translation of JHWs is valuable to English learners, especially to translators themselves. Actually, JHWs, such as political, juristic or economic words have already formed definite translations, the translation strategies, methods and techniques which have adopted in translation of JHWs will help translators to handle with the new words much easier.

Quite a few researches on journalistic text translation or hot words translation can be found. Overseas researchers focused on journalistic text translation more than JHWs translation. Many scholars studied the role of culture in journalistic text translation, such as its importance and strategies to keep cultural style in journalistic texts translation; some researchers concentrated on the application of specific translation strategies, methods or techniques, such as domestication, trans-editing and hedging devices. Domestic researchers pay more attention to journalistic text translation than hot words translation as well. Some researchers even studied translation techniques solely. Such translation theories, like Relevance Theory, the Functional Equivalence Theory and the Skopos theory are discussed at most in academic papers. Almost no one study the translation of JHWs systemically. It should be noted that people hardly distinguish the category of strategy, method and techniques. For example, in an academic paper, the main study issue is variation translation which relates to translation method, but the academic term “translation method” might be defined as a translation technique in the paper.
