The improvement of national cultural literacy is inseparable from the popularization of scientific knowledge,so the importance of translation of popular science text is self-evident.This paper chooses some chapters of Something Deeply Hidden: Quantum Worlds and the Emergence of Spacetime as practical translation object.The original book focuses on the global issue of quantum mechanics and retrospects many-worlds theory,which has a history of over 60 years.It provides a new perspective for the interpretation of quantum mechanics.The reader can learn about quantum mechanics and the theory of many-worlds through this book,thus broaden their horizons and improve their scientific and cultural literacy.This text is highly professional,with many technical terms and lengthy sentence structure plus complex logical relationship,which result in certain translation problems.Guided by the theory of functional equivalence,this paper uses the method of splitting,cutting,synthesis and reversing to solve the problems in translation practice,namely complex logic relationship of complex sentences,many postpositional sentence elements,nested clauses and complex word order of complex sentences.The paper finds that the theory of functional equivalence is suitable for the translation of English popular science texts into Chinese,and the specific translation techniques such as splitting and cutting also have practical significance on the translation of complex sentences in popular science texts,and have an obvious effect on improving the quality of translation.
