Abstract: Translation simply does not mean the mere conversion of a language into texts, it carries much more significance in the cultural aspect. By analysing the same translation under different contexts, we will find that such translation are usually formed with hidden reasoning. Therefore, the translator has to decide which translation strategies to adopt based on the different contexts. Singapore street name “Trengganu” was named after State Terengganu (old spelling was Trengganu) Malaysia by the Municipal Council during the British Colonial times in the late 19th century. Other streets that was named after the major places of Malaysia include Johor Road and Malacca Street etc. Before 1970, the Chinese translation for Trengganu Street has always been“登嘉楼街” (pinyin: dēng jiā lóu jiē). Until the 1970s, in an effort of the Singapore government to standardise the Chinese translation of street names in Singapore, the Chinese translation for Trengganu Street was changed to“丁加奴街” (pinyin: dīng jiā nú jiē), which corresponds to Malaysia Terengganu state’s Chinese translation of“丁加奴” (pinyin: dīng jiā nú) at that point of time. The newly translated street name was fixed since then. However in 2004, the Chinese society in Terengganu Malaysia proposed to the Chinese Language Standardisation Council of Malaysia to change the Chinese state name of Terengganu to“登嘉楼”as“丁加奴”carries a negative meaning. They explained that“登嘉楼”sounds more elegant and is more auspicious. Research has been conducted and information was gathered, the Chinese Language Standardisation Council of Malaysia finally announced the official change of the Chinese state name of Terengganu to“登嘉楼”in 2005. In conjunction with Skopos Theory and Rewriting Theory while using the translation for “Trengganu” in both countries (Singapore and Malaysia) as an example, this thesis aims to examine how local policies will affect the formation and changing of the same translation under different contexts.
