The main function of tourism English translation is to help tourists better understand the style introduction and cultural characteristics of scenic spots. What are the characteristics of tourism English translation? Here's how to share with you:
The first is the diversification of translation genres. As we all know, tourist attractions have different classification and characteristics. For example, China has the world-famous Great Wall, the terracotta warriors and horses of Qin Shihuang in Shaanxi Province, one of the "seven wonders of the world", the Huangguoshu waterfall in Guizhou Province, the largest waterfall in Asia, and the Giant Panda Nature Reserve in Wolong, Hubei Province. It involves astronomy, geography, history, culture, religion, poetry, art and other genres. If English translation requires a translator to be an expert, then the translation of tourism English is a comprehensive investigation of the cultural knowledge of the translator, and even to be competent for a qualified tourism English translation. To some extent, the translator should have a "Encyclopedia" type of knowledge material reserve.
The second is the diversity of translation language styles. Because in the translation of tourism English, the translation objects contacted by translators are not the same. Some translation languages require a certain degree of elegance and depth, similar to the ancient popular "spring snow". For example, when translating some scenic spots such as Mogao Grottoes, Li Qingzhao's former residence and so on with strong cultural heritage. Similarly, when translating some local customs with strong local ethnic characteristics, such as the kite festival in Weifang, shadow play in Shaanxi and Errenzhuan in Northeast China, etc. In the translation of this kind of tourist attractions, translators are required to use artistic language close to people's life on the basis of respecting foreign national culture to realize the translation of "xialiba people" mentioned in the old saying. In other words, the translation language style of tourist attractions should be both elegant and grounded. Only in this way can the translation of tourist attractions be accurate and in place.
Finally, the consistency of translation expression. To some extent, the translated scenic spots are the symbolic symbols of a certain country or region. Therefore, no matter how diverse the genre of translation and how tall the style of translation language is, we should try our best to ensure the consistency of translation in the key interpretation and translation of some important tourist attractions. Avoid communication inconsistency or even misunderstanding and divergence due to the inconsistency of translation of the same scenic spot or the same thing. This requirement is also an inevitable requirement for the tourism industry to push into the international market. Only when the standards are unified, can it be conducive to the world promotion of scenic spots and regional tourism culture. Of course, it needs to be pointed out and emphasized that although the translation standards and consistency are required, it does not mean that in the translation of tourism English, the word "Qianjing" is the same for thousands of people. On the contrary, it has a negative impact on the introduction of scenic spots. Because, the national culture, national attractions need to have national characteristics of translation and expression, in order to really let the national into the world.
