Abstract

赞助人与专业人士是影响翻译活动的重要因素。随着经济的飞速发展和国力的不断增强,中国的国际地位也日益提升,中国政府也认识到把中国优秀的文化及文学作品引介到海外是提升中国文化软实力的重要手段,启动了几项重大的中国文化 / 文学外译项目,比如 2010 年启动的“中国文学海外传播工程”、2014 年启动的“中国现当代文化经典库”等。本文将分析中国文化 / 文学外译中的赞助人与专业人士问题,并以“中国现当代文化经典文库”为例,探讨赞助人与专业人士在中国文化 / 文学外译中发挥的作用,并分析在新时期出现的一种新的赞助形式——联合赞助。

Patrons and professionals may exert great influence upon translation activities. With the rapid development of China’s national power and influence in the international arena, the 21st century has marked an unprecedented era of translating Chinese culture into English, the global lingua franca. The Chinese government considers it very important to support the translation of outstanding Chinese literary and cultural products to the outside world so as to increase China’s cultural soft power. Under this “Going Out Policy”, several big translation projects have been initiated in the new millennium—for example, among others, “Chinese Literature Overseas Dissemination Project” was initiated in 2010 and “CPG China Library” was launched in 2014 with the purpose of translating Chinese culture into the English world. This paper discusses the issues related to patrons and professionals in this background, and, taking the “CPG China Library” project as an example, analyses the roles played by patrons and professionals in translating Chinese literature/culture into English, and investigates the emergence of joint patronage, a new form of patronage, in the 21st century.
