A Study on the Translation and Intercultural Communication of Yugur Ethnic Culture

Zhijiao FENG


The Yugar people (distinct form Uighur) are unique to Gansu Province and are one of the smallest ethnic minorities in China. Their distinctive culture has a history of more than 2400 years and serves as an essential part of Chinese culture as well as an indispensable portion of national cultures of the world. The inheritance and development of Yugur culture satisfy the need for Yugur nationality development, as well as the demand of the cultural exchanges and mutual learning of various nationalities in the world. Combining the development characteristics of Yugur culture with the theoretical framework of medio-translatology, this paper constructs a four-in-one framework for the cross-cultural communication of Yugur culture, namely national initiative, ethnic writing, industry innovation, and talent cultivation. This provides a certain reference for cross-cultural communication of Yugur culture and other ethnic cultures.
