Literature Review
英语021 单琴琴 With the process of commercialization speeding up, the commercial advertisements now have spilled their influence into every cornor in the world and become practically inescapable. As China has entered into the WTO, more and more commercial advertisements need translating into English urgently. However, there exist a great many errors in the Chinese-English translation of commercial advertisements. Those errors in the commercial advertisements translation have become the obvious obstacles to the booming of China’s foreign trade. Therefore, the task of improving the current Chinese-English translation in commercial advertisements has been put up to agenda. Through two months’ efforts in searching, collecting and reading an abundance of scholars and professors’ literature concerning the translation in commercial advertisements, I made a detail analysis of the literature and create the following essay which summons up the essence of the literature.
