Film subtitle translation is of great significance for the outward publicity and dissemination of films, and audiences’ reception of a film indirectly reflects the popularity of its subtitle translation. To maximize the target audiences’ acceptance, translators may adopt some strategies or methods to enable audiences to understand information and culture behind lines with ease. Under the guidance of translation variation theory, this paper analyzes the variation in the subtitle translation of The Battle at Lake Changjin from the perspective of audiences’ reception, including translation plus rewriting, translation plus explanation and selected translation, which might help remove barriers to foreign audiences’ understanding, providing suggestions and methods for the subtitle translation of films with revolutionary themes in the process of going globally.
