- In the context of the accelerating process of globalization, cultural exchanges are increasingly frequent. As a result, as an important cross-cultural literary carrier, literary translation plays an increasingly prominent position in cultural exchanges. Moreover, under the influence of cultural context, literary translation has more specific requirements for foreignizing translation in the contemporary cultural exchange and dissemination due to its unique text type. This paper first describes the basic concept of cultural context, and then expounds the particularity of literary texts in translation process compared with other texts. Additionally, it also discusses the epochal nature of foreignizing translation strategies in the contemporary translation process based on historical factors, and finally explores the specific application of foreignizing translation with examples.
