Based on the theory of eco-translatology, this paper makes a comparative study of some articles in the two English versions of treatises on Treatise on Febrile Diseases. It analyzes the adaptive selection and transformation of its linguistic, cultural and communicative dimensions. Through the core psychological concept of “Translator-centeredness” in ecological translation, this paper divides the two translators’ choice of translation purpose, translation quality and translation strategy in order to provide reference for the translation of Treatise on Febrile Diseases and other traditional Chinese medicine books.
