Can one achieve an accurate or faithful translation from one language to another? Or, is it the best one can do to provide an approximate version? The two investigagions on this topic will present long sentences from writings varied in genre, topic, and style as examples of translations between English and Chinese to address our understanding of accuracy and faithfulness in language translation. The authors analyze such translations based on linguistic and stylistic requirements and the cultural conventions of the two languages. They also describe some techniques for translating long sentences.
