Beijing local-color literature is the literature of Beijing city and people, and has an important place in the 20th century Chinese literature schools. The narrative of Beijing local-color literature is characterized by “Beijingness”, and is a reservoir of rich Beijing local culture. A number of Beijing Local-Color writings have been translated into English and published at home and abroad, which started the translation studies on language and translation strategies of its English versions. Since the 1990s, the cultural turn of translation studies has initiated the multi-dimensional research by integrating linguistics, literature and cultural studies with translation studies, and helped formulate the cultural focus in the translation studies of Beijing local-color literature. In the context of cultural translation studies, a literary work is a kind of cultural product. The narrative, style and space in Beijing local-color literature are invested with profound Beijing local culture. The accurate representation of the cultural Beijingness embedded in Beijing local-color literature is an important standard to evaluate the translation.
