There are three major difficulties in translation: it has to be loyal to the original text, comprehensible to the reader and written in the most adequate rhetorical terms. Since China opened up its frontiers many people have embarked on translating. However, many of their translations are neither loyal nor comprehensible. The present article, which is a prologue of T.H. Huxley's Evolution, Ethics and Other Essays is devoted to this problem.
