Qi LU, Yuying LI


As a momentous material for carrying and promoting culture, museum texts contain not only abundant information but also profound cultural implication. Along with the development of modern linguistics theories and their related disciplines, modern translation compensation research is also constantly gaining momentum. Through analyzing the translation of archaeological exhibitions of the Han Dynasty in Nanchang, this paper deals with the characteristics of the museum texts and its translation compensation strategies with a view to providing a new research approach for the future translation practice of museum texts.
