Abstract

Translation is an advanced subject and semantic equivalence in translation has always been the focus of the debate of scholars. How to achieve semantic equivalence becomes a hot spot in the focus. Due to cultural differences and expression habits, semantic equivalence is almost completely impossible. But it is possible to achieve maximum degree of semantic equivalence, if considering various factors and taking the appropriate strategy as much as possible in translation. This paper tries to analyze the semantic equivalence problem in English-Chinese translation from five aspects, such as theory connotation, influencing factors, realizability, relativity and countermeasures of semantic equivalence, and proves equivalence theory is of extensive significance as the standard and principle in translation.
