Traditionally, due to the "individualistic conception of authorship", the author enjoys the freedom in the expression of his thoughts and feelings in writing, which is thus viewed as an original and transparent self-representation. Whereas the translation is derivative, fake, potentially a false copy. This underestimation of the value of translation and ST-oriented approach in traditional translation studies result in invisibility of the translator, which is the degradation of the position of the translator and ambiguity of his/her identity.Up to recent years, translation studies experiences a process from source text-oriented approach to target text-oriented approach. Along with this shift of attention, proper and increasing attention has been paid to the subjectivity of the translator. The translator, as a subjective being, never is and should not be a neutral machine of transmitter without any individual characteristics and flavor. In the course of the construction of the target text, there is an inevitable involvement of the translator’s personal experience, including his emotion, motivation, attitudes, social relations, etc. The translator plays the role as "reader" and "rewriter", "selectee" and "selector", the recipient and sender of a message, interpreter and re-creator, etc. Whereas, what is ignored in the previous studies of the "dual identity" of the translator is the translator as a researcher.The present thesis is theoretically based on the survey of the most important trends and contributions to translation theories concerning the translator’s role, and aims at the examination of the translator’s identity as researcher with reference to
