Nida's ideas on translation have great influence on Chinese translation scholars. His recent statement ? "My ideas have changed substantially" 梬ill surely have a negative impact on the development of translation stud- ies in China. This paper aims at analyzing, from three perspectives, the reasons for Nida's change of views on transla- tion. It will also give a re-evaluation of the position and role of translation theories in translation studies, as well as ex- plore the relation of theory and practice.
