Matteo Ricci's Tianzhu shi yi (The True Meaning of the Lord of Heaven) and His Strategies for Translating Christian Terms into Chinese

Chu Chiyu (Hong Kong Polytechnic University,Hong Kong,China)  
In compiling Tianzhu shi yi(The True Meaning of the Lord of Heaven),Matteo Ricci made one of the first attempts to translate Christian terminology into Chinese.A close reading of this catechism in Chinese shows that Ricci did not adopt a"domesticating" approach,as Nida would later recommend.Instead,in turning the Confucian terminology to his own use and bringing about a fusion of Confucianism and Christianity,he employed a strategy of translation that could only be described as"foreignizing"in today's terms.The adeptness with which Ricci applied the foreignizing method is rarely seen in the history of translation.
