Abstract
This paper focuses on importance of the loyalty, types of the loyalty, strategies of faithful translation and interferences of absolute loyalty in science and technology translation. In terms of importance of the loyalty in translation, this paper probes into the roles and the embodiment of loyalty in practice; Then centering on types of the loyalty, this paper analyses the translator’s pursuit of perfect translation; Next, in light of strategies of faithful translation and with a large amount of supporting examples, it points out that science and technology translation activities are carried out with specific aims. Meanwhile the principles of faithfulness are feasible but have limitations. In the end, an analysis is given about interferences of absolute loyalty in English and Chinese translation to expound that pursuit of loyalty is faced with the obstacles. At last this paper reveals that there is no absolute loyalty in translation. This paper is hoped for helping people understand and master the skills of translation and to enrich the database of science and technology translation.
