ABSTRACT

The purpose of this paper is to present the strategy by stage of translation in the perspective of the social cognitive writing theory for effective translation. Since the translation is a series of process to yield translated sentences as a result object, it can be referred to as writing process. Based on the point of view that the translation is the writing process integrated with 'reading-writing', we re-establish the concept of translation in the perspective of the social cognitive writing theory, and present with the principle of translation and the translation strategy by stages during the translation process. As the social cognitive writing theory regards the writing as the meaning composition process through interactions with members of the discourse community and emphasizes the social environment which influences the meaning composition process through interaction with the writer, it compliments the strategy of solving problems required in the writing process. So we re-establish the concept of translation as 'communication process as well as meaning composition process which re-produce and re-create a completed text, by interpreting the text of a start language as the text of a target language in consideration of social and cultural context of discourse community through conversation with audience' in the perspective of social cognitive writing theory. And we set up the principles of translation with five categories of 'participation principle to discourse community', 'integration principle of reading-writing', 'conversation theory', and 'interdisciplinary principle'. We establish the process of translation as categories of 'Planning→understanding(data investigation→rough reading)→Expressing→Revising', and suggest the translation strategy by stages required during the course of translation for effective translation, referring to the problem solving strategy by stages during the writing process presented as method of writing in the social cognitive writing theory.
