Abstract
From the perspective of Eco-translatology, this paper analyzes the translational eco-environment of TCM textbook for international students, putting forward its complexity and specialty. With the application of “Translation as Adaptation and Selection” theory, this paper further proposes that in translation of TCM textbook for international students, translator-centeredness should be ensured by a translator’s selective adaptation and adaptive selection, in order to fit to its translational eco-environment and choose suitable target texts, thus to keep the eco-balance.
