This essay analyses the current situation of translation criticism in China, pointing out issues such as “casualness,” “one-sidedness” and the “occasional nature” of the practice of translation criticism. The essay continues with a focused assessment of the studies of Chinese and Western translation criticism theories in China, arguing that such studies should be consolidated on the basis of “a scientific critical attitude,” “an autonomous critical system,” “a normative critical standard,” and an “open critical vision and a guiding critical function,” so as to enhance the construction of theory.
