This book takes a corpus-based approach, which integrates translation studies and contrastive analysis, to the study of translational language. It presents the world's first balanced corpus of translational Chinese, which, in combination with a comparable native Chinese corpus, provides a reliable empirical basis for a comprehensive account of the macro-statistic, lexical, and grammatical features of translational Chinese in English-to-Chinese translation - a significant contribution to Descriptive Translation Studies. The research findings based on these two distinctly different languages have important implications for universal translation research on the European tradition.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book by Xiao and Hu (2015) provides a much needed perspective and directs their efforts towards investigating the linguistic features of translational Chinese by probing into two genetically different languages, Chinese and English. The readers should be delighted to find that on the one hand ... . the book is to date the most comprehensive study of translational Chinese adopting a corpus approach." (Wenchao Su and Defeng Li, Digital Scholarship in the Humanities, Vol. 31 (3), 2016)
