Abstract: Aiming to improve students' narrative ability of TCM translation, a task-oriented translation teaching is carried out based on the parallel text corpus of TCM translation. During a 14-week term, students are expected to learn to choose translation strategies flexibly according to the text function, target audience, translation purpose and other factors. As revealed in students' translation coursework and interview performed after the teaching practice, this course can help students master flexible translation strategies like transedition, modification, selective translation creation, thus improve the quality and communication of their translation text. In addition, students can improve their ability of independent learning, critical thinking, interpersonal and cross-cultural communication, as well as team cooperation at the same time.

Key words: narrative ability of TCM translation, parallel text corpus of TCM translation, task-based TCM translation teaching, flexible translation strategies
