Abstract

George Steiner, one of the representatives of hermeneutics, proposed that translation should go through four steps, namely "trust", "aggression", "absorption" and "compensation". In the "aggression" step, the translator needs to exert subjectivity, decompose the original text, and extract the parts he needs from the potential meaning of the text. Qi Min Yao Shu, as a text that is both scientific and literary, the translator's subjectivity in the "aggression" part plays a crucial role in its translation. At the same time, as a work to guide agricultural production, Qi Min Yao Shu needs to be explained reasonably and clearly by the author, and its guiding significance should be retained in the translated text. Under these conditions, hermeneutics is a very suitable theory of translation. In general, little attention has been paid to agricultural translation, but agriculture is the foundation of a country. In the context of "agricultural power", the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China promotes the translation of agricultural classics, which also holds far-reaching significance for the times.
