- This paper mainly analyses the on-line collaborative translation of popular literatures taking the translations of Harry Potter as an example. Based on the transactional reader-response theory and social reader-response theory, it discusses the transaction among source text, target text, source text reader and target text reader, and examine different critical camps/readers and their different interpretative strategies to the text so as to obtain a more objective perception of the on-line literary translation. It is concluded that translators and readers should join hands in actively making the meaning of the source text, and the interaction between the two texts and two readers is a very significant translating process, which greatly helps improve the quality of the final version.
