1. The importance of TCM terminology translation
With the social improvement, human beings are facing lots of threatening diseases. western doctors and experts found that herbs and treatment of TCM, have taken effect on some diseases which were regarded as incurable. many doctors have achieved unexpected effects in integrating TCM and western medicine. Thus, the significant role of TCM and its profound influence on the health care system is being well recognized. However, in western countries, it’s quite slow for ordinary people to accept TCM. Maybe because they know little about TCM, or because the terminology of TCM are confusing and complex. In this case, translating TCM terminology into English, especially good English, is in great urgency. Although translating TCM terminology into English is surely a very difficult task, this process will promote the acceptance of TCM in western world, and contribute to the integration of TCM and western medicine and the cultural exchange between China and other nations of the world.
2. Previous research on Norms of TCM Terminology Translation
The unstandardization of TCM terms are more like the obstructions in the raceway. No wonder that some translators think the translation of Chinese medical terms is a question which is still much in the air and lacks deep debate And this problem would also make the Westerners consider the TCM as a social science, not a scientific system. Nowadays, a great deal of literature, philosophy and religion vocabularies is used in TCM translation, which could not be accepted easily by West learners. Therefore, the TCM terms should be standard as soon as possible.Although this problem has been noticed by the related departments, however, beside of the acupuncture terms authorized by WHO, the TCM terms are still in chaos.
1. Factors may influence the norms choosing in TCM terminology translation

3. The trend of norms choosing with the changes of TCM’s status.
4. The effectiveness of using the Polysystem
1.The attitudes of translator to TCM , the actual position of TCM and publisher and research organization all of them may have influence on the norms choosing.
2.TCM’s status is raising but still in a bilateral position.
3.TCM terminology translation mainly apply the norm of foreignalization
4. Polysystem can be used to instruct the choosing of norms in TCM terminology translation.
1、The shortcomings of Polysystem might make difficulties to research
2、The norms and strategies used in TCM terminology translation are complicated and massive
3、Some concepts in translation field are ambiguous
1. An Overview of Poly-system Theory
2. Key Concepts of the Poly-system Theory
2.1 The Poly-system
2.2 Adequate and acceptable
2.3 Initial norm and preliminary norm and operational norm
Quantitative research was applied to analyze the texts and find out the relationships between texts and norms used in TCM terminology translation. The texts were collected from published materials including monograph and articles from journals. The research was conducted as following steps: firstly, the changes of TCM’s statuses in world medicine system was studied. Second, the changes of norms used in TCM terminology translation were studied with the changes of TCM’s status by Polysystem. Thirdly, concluding the norms which can be rendered effectively in TCM terminology translation at present status.
