1. Introduction

Chinese two-part allegorical sayings are very important in Chinese, and it has been ignored in the field of translation. Researchers did not pay attention to them until the foundation of the Ballad Seminar in Peking University in 1920. In the 1930s, different aspects of Chinese two-part allegorical sayings were discussed, which are helpful for further studies in this field during the 20th century. However, Chinese two-part allegorical sayings still gain much less attention than other forms of idioms.

Because Chinese two-part allegorical sayings did not belong to a separate category in early times, researchers, in quite a long time, have seldom studied specifically on the translation of Chinese two-part allegorical sayings. They just mentioned the translation of two-part allegorical sayings when discussing the translation of idioms. A typical example is Professor Zhang Peiji’s study on the translation of Chinese idioms (1979: 34). In his book, Zhang Peiji mentioned the translation of Chinese two-part allegorical sayings while researching on Chinese idioms. He put forward twelve approaches to translate Chinese idioms. Among those approaches, seven ones can be used to translate Chinese two-part allegorical sayings. The results of Zhang’s study provide helpful advice and guidance for the translation of Chinese two-part allegorical sayings. However his fails to take literary factors into consideration in literary translation. In his mind, Chinese two-part allegorical sayings belong to a kind of vulgarism. He held that rude languages should not be used in translation. 从奈达功能对等论角度谈汉语歇后语的英译:http://www.lwfree.com/yingyu/lunwen_57168.html
