On Translation of The Three-Body Problem from the Perspective of Feminist Translation Theory


Chinese science fiction book The Three-Body Problem has won the 2015 Hugo Award for Best Novel. The author Liu Cixin becomes the first Asian writer who won the Hugo Award, the highest honor for science fiction works along with the Nebula Award. This is a very significant and historical moment for all the Chinese people, because it marks that Chinese science fiction begins to march into the world market.

The trilogy (Remembrance of Earth’s Past) of The Three-Body Problem has been honored as the milestone of Chinese science fiction. The Three-Body Problem is the first opportunity for English-speaking readers to experience this extraordinary work which has won so many awards from China’s most beloved science fiction author, Liu Cixin. Apart from the translated version, the work also inspires a Hollywood film adaptation, which will be seen by July 2016.

There is a fact that no matter how outstanding and splendid a literary work is, it can hardly “go global” without a successful translation. Even though the translation of this work is definitely not easy at all due to the unique Chinese historical background and Chinese literary features in the source text (ST) compound with huge cultural gaps. Ken Liu once pointed out: There are background assumptions and bits of knowledge that a Chinese reader would have that the author can count on, but which American readers don’t have. This means that some nuances will be “lost” in the translation, but it’s not because the same thing can’t be said in English, it’s that the average American readers don’t share the same cultural assumptions as the writer Liu Cixin had in mind.” Consequently, it is difficult to preserve the original beauty and flavor in the target text (TT).

From the perspective of feminist translation theory, the English

translation version, The Three-Body Problem is in line with the law of translator’s subjectivity and adaptation in order to survive in the translation of Eco-feminism. This thesis is to analyze that how the subjectivity of translator Ken Liu is reflected in his translation and how he manages to rewrite the original text in a feminist way in the process of translating.
