On Clausal Formal Shifts in Text Translation from Thematic Differences between English and Chinese

This paper tries to apply thematic structure into translation study,to contrast English and Chinese thematic structures and then to analyze how the difference is used in translation shifts.English is subject-prominent,while Chinese is topic-prominent.Reflected in thematic structure,the difference is that there is more subject theme in English and more topic theme in Chinese.Besides,subject in Chinese clause is often omitted,which is quite different from English.Therefore,the shift of subject and topic is a skill widely used in translation between English and Chinese.
