Abstract
Political document is an important means to propagate the policies of the authority. Its translation quality will not only have a direct impact on the efficiency of political publicity, but also have great influence on China's image in the international community. This paper is involved with Vermeer's Skopos theory, Reiss's text typology and Nord's function plus loyalty. With an analysis of the text features of government work report, the author explores several feasible translation strategies at lexical level, syntactical level, textual level and cultural level respectively.
