On English Translation of Chinese Dish Names from the Perspective of Skopos Theory

1. Introduction

China is a traditional cooking country, and the cooking culture is an important part of traditional culture. With the increasingly development of globalization, the impact of Chinese traditional culture in the whole world is obvious. Names of Chinese dishes reflect the consummate cooking skills, the unique regional specialties and the magnificent food culture of China. Severing as a window and a bridge, they help foreign friends understand China and Chinese cooking culture better. In a global context, the translation of Chinese dishes attracts more and more attention, and how to translate the dish names correctly become ever more important. A unified and accurate translation of Chinese dishes is urgently needed.

Skopos Theory is the core theory of German functionalist translation theory. Skopos is a Greek word for ‘purpose’.
