Customers have different thoughts due to different culture backgrounds. So the Chinese translation of English brand names is closely related to target customers’ culture background, psychology and aesthetics. This essay mainly discusses the Chinese translation principles and strategies of English brand names. The author starts the essay by analyzing the current studies on brand name translation. Secondly, the author states the function of brand names and introduces four features of brand names, simple and easy to remember, innovative and persuasive, highlighting product features and reflecting local culture.
