Analysis on Semantic Translation and Communicative Translation

WANG Hua-ling(School of Foreign Languages,Central South University,Changsha 410075 Hunan)  
This paper analyzes and comments on the two new concepts put forward by Peter Newmark in his book Approaches to Translation,i.e.semantic translation and communicative translation.By taking the two English versions of Hong Lou Meng respectively translated by Yang Xianyi and David Hawkes as examples,the present author intends to illustrate the actual application of the two translation methods.While semantic translation emphasizes translation of the original meaning of the source text,communicative translation pays more attention to equivalent effects of the source text and the target text on their readers.Their essential distinction lies in that the former stresses the effect resulting from the original information,while the latter attaches great importance to the content of the original meaning.Meanwhile,we can see that their distinction is only relative.In translation practice,these two methods will be alternatively adopted to pursue the best translation result.
