Abstract

The “Europeanization of Chinese” is a linguistic phenomenon, which is reflected in the composition of words, sentences, etc.; it can enrich Chinese expressions, but can also bring negative consequences known as the “pernicious Europeanized Chinese”. This paper will discuss the phenomenon of “Europeanization” in the development of Chinese, and make a contrastive study of two representative translations of The History of the Second World War. In this way this paper demonstrated translators’ efforts of how”pernicious Europeanization of Chinese” is detected and corrected by taking the translation texts as an example.
