Abstract

This paper aims to observe, describe and explain the translation of film titles with the Chinese character “Xia”. In this paper, a small parallel corpus is firstly constructed and annotated to analyze the basic information, language features, translation principles, strategies, methods and techniques of film titles. And then, based on Holmes’ methodology of Descriptive Translation Studies, some descriptive corpus is analyzed and some assumptions are predicated. Finally, these assumptions are divided into three preliminary norms, two initial norms, two matrix norms and three textual-linguistic norms under the guidance of Toury’s translation norm system with a view to provide some references and inspiration for the standardization of film title translation.
