Facing the current ecological crisis, various disciplines have explored ecological study paths, thus environmental issues are tackled from various fields, and human-nature relationship is paid much attention to. Among those disciplines is translation studies. This paper gives an overview of current translation studies from ecological perspective: the metaphorical-sense study of ecology, translation study in biosemiotics, eco-translation in the path of political ecology and ecocritical study of translation. These studies break the anthropocentrism in translation studies, extend the conceptual category of translation, provide a new horizon and entrust translation studies with ecological value. We analyze and reflect on these ecological translation studies, in a bid to provide insights into the ecological perspective of translation studies.
