Biography

I have started my PhD project recently on audiovisual English-Chinese translation studies under the title “the Impact of the Online Subtitle Translation of English Films and TV Series upon the Development of the English-Chinese Translation in China since 2000”. I have graduated in Film and Television Studies at the University of Portsmouth in 2014, and the PhD research will allow me to pursue my three areas of interest: English-Chinese Translation Studies, Chinese Subtitle of English TV Drama, and English-Chinese Transculture Studies. My research will concentrate on the online fansubbers’ translation to analyze how they create a new style of translation and how their translation of English films and TV series affect the development of English- Chinese translation since 2000, and finally find out whether this new style translation should be used widely to translate other materials such as books or articles and how the new style translation affect English-Chinese transculture.
