Abstract
Different translators have different versions of the same source text. This essay is to illuminate the reasons behind the phenomenon by using Halliday’s Systematic-functional grammar. It is found that there are a series of factors which contribute to the diversity and the increase of the number of versions, namely the selection of words, of sentence patterns, of the structure of Theme and Rheme, the text structure, etc.
