Abstract
In modern society, advertising, as the embodiment of commerce, is becoming an important part of our daily life. Not only is it supposed to be appealing, it is also used as a tool for manufacturers to improve their products’ marketability. With globalization accelerating, more and more businesses of all types are operating internationally in various ways. With china’s accession to the WTO there has been a dramatic increase in the number of Chinese enterprises and products flowing into the international market while at the same time the increased transparency and advantages that WTO membership confers have ushered in a new sea of foreign goods into our domestic market. To survive in the fierce global market, they have to make a lot of promotions for their products in foreign markets. In this situation, advertisement translation is increasingly showing its importance. However, in all national markets, particularly in China, unsatisfying translation is appearing in media ever and again, which not only means financial loss, but also impairs the public image of manufacturers as well. Hence, it becomes an urgent task for those devoted to translation practice to seek a suitable theory for guidance.
Therefore, this thesis will talk about the advertising English and its translation. First of all, I will talk about the purpose and significance of the study, it includes the importance of the advertising, then, I will talk about the dimensions of advertising and, in this part I will take a brief introduction to advertising and the definition of
advertising. In chapter 3 I will present a brief introduction to functional equivalence, it includes its background and definition. Then, I will give some examples of semantic equivalence, and analyse these examples. Chapter 4 is the most important part of this thesis, in this chapter I will talk about the basic strategies of advertising translation, but first of all I have to write about the character of advertising, then I will present several strategies to translate the adverting. These strategies are as following: literal translation, free translation, adaptive translation, associative transliteration.
Key words: advertising, international translation, strategy

Acknowledgements
In writing this thesis, I received so much help and advice from many people that my indebtedness to them is beyond words
First and foremost, I owe my tremendous debt of gratitude to my supervisor, teacher Wang Ning, for his warmth and understanding which he has graciously given me. He is always very busy, but when I call him for some problems, he always presents patience and is ready to answer my questions. Sometimes I do not dare to pardon him, because he is so busy, so I start to learn deal the problem by myself, but without his encouragement and guidance in the formation of the outline of thesis as well as the subsequent reshaping of ideas I was still on the way.
Then, I would like to thank my classmates, they also give me a lot of advice, and sometimes I would discuss with them, they have pointed out my mistakes and told me what things should be added to this thesis. When I am in the stake they will encourage me and try their best to help me from these points I was deeply touched, they give me courage and confidence, inspiring me to bridge over difficulties.
In addition, I also do not forget to thank my family, they support me every minute. They are the bay for my leisure.

  1.1 Purpose and Significance of the Study With china’s accession to the WTO there has been a dramatic increase in the number of Chinese enterprises and products flowing into the international market while at the same time the increased transparency and advantages that WTO membership confers have ushered in a new sea of foreign goods into our domestic market. In this heated war of competition, the most powerful weapon available in shaping self image and promoting one’s goods is the advertisement-it is this that prompts every enterprise.
However, as we see in our daily life, the quality of those translated advertisement is not satisfactory. For some of those translated, people are just lost at sea in terms of the product information. for some others, people could even get an adversary impression of the product just due to the diversity of cultures. To advertising, such a special style, up till now, no one has put forward a clear and practical preliminary study on the features of advertising English, and based on that, comes up with a translation principle.

Chapter 2 The Dimensions of Advertising

  2.1 A Brief Introduction to Advertising With the development of economic globalization, more and more companies will be involved in business interaction. In order to export their products and their commodities. As a promotion device and an important way to put products into international market, advertising plays an increasingly significant role in developing a larger market. But it is an important issue how to make the consumers accept and prefer your products in a foreign market. Apart from other respects, advertising demonstrates absolutely essential significance, advertising also let the world know about China, since advertising can help to create wealth, so this chapter is mainly concerned with a general study of advertising.

  2.2 The Definition of Advertising With the development of economic, we can see advertising everywhere such as radio, TV, newspaper, billboards buildings; and even when we on the metro or on the street. It is no exaggeration to say that there are few places in the public that are not permeated with advertisements.
Advertising is the nonpersonal communication of information usually paid for and usually persuasive in nature about products, services or ideas by identified sponsors through the various media. (American Marketing Association)(Bovee, 1992,
  7)
Advertising is a way to promote the products. It can reach everywhere and everyone can see it, and it do not need the seller and buyer to get together. The consumer can get message from the advertisement, it contain the products’ message, it always comes from short and easy to remember, it also comes from our daily life whose words
easy to see, for example, My goodness! My Guinness(我的天!我的健力士) good to the Last drop(Maxwell), That’s my way(la saunda), “wear the world”(国际时尚, 戴在 ( advertising makes the brand well know, we know Intel Pentium(英 我手) 珠宝广告) 特尔奔腾), Philips(飞利浦电器), Time(时代杂志), Guinness(健力士), Colgate(高露 洁), Lipton(立顿),Coca-cola(可口可乐), and so on, why we know these brands?
