In the Late Qing Dynasty, while a large number of foreign literary translations entered China with national revolution gathered paces, there were also some works created by Chinese people under the guise of translation. Such works are known as “pseudo-translation” works. This paper attempts to argue for the existence of pseudo-translations in the translations of the first series of detective novels, Chinese, in terms of the conversion of signature, the application of flashback, and the remains of female aesthetics.
