Two Chinese translators are selected for research: one is Huang Wen who has returned to Hong Kong after studying abroad, and the other is Nie Hualing who lives in the United States after finishing her education in China. First, the study briefly introduces the two translated versions and states the reasons for selection. Second, it describes the two versions from the aspects of structural arrangement, vocabulary distribution, type token ratio, verses and lines, readability and so on. Third, the lexical and semantic features of the two translations are compared and analyzed with the MRC psycholinguistic database and the TAALES 2.2 tool.
