1 Introduction
The title is the window to the film. According to The Complete Dictionary (2003)1, the title means any words that appear on the screen not as part of the scene but as a means of conveying information to the audience. This paper discusses the relationship between cultural factors and the translation of film title.
With the popularization of English throughout the world, English become the main language of broadcasting film among different nations. At the same time, film title is not only the concentration of text and soul, but also the sign of its theme, plot, style, and narration. So, it is a big challenge to translate the film title successfully in various kinds of language. A spectacular version should cater a lot to the charm of the film and plays a vital part in introducing a new film. For the foreign audiences and Chinese audiences’ better understanding, accurate and precise language-exchange between china and western countries and the implications of the film should be expressed exactly (Shi Jia: 2013).
Moreover, as a form of spreading comprehensive culture, films interrelate with historic culture closely, have connection with natural expression, and satisfy audience’s psychological needs and aesthetic mentality. In short, as for audience to comprehend the film title, cultural factors should be the immediate cause of understanding and grasping the implications of film context, and the primary cause of translating film title successfully.
