Translation Ethics was first mentioned by Anthoine Berman in 1980s. Apart from the traditional four translation ethics models, representation, service, communication and norm-based, Andrew Chesterman proposed the fifth, commitment, in a paper named Proposal for a Hieronymic Oath in 2001. ‘Cong Cong’ is a famous essay written by Zhu Ziqing, a writer, essayist and democracy fighter in China. This paper tries to make an analysis of the two English versions of ‘Cong Cong’ from the perspective of Chesterman’s translation ethics, to find out what translation techniques did the two translators use to show translation ethics, so as to provide a new perspective of essay translation.
