For the sake of this study “coming up for air†written by George Orwell (1939) as well as two translations were selected. One of them is translated by Rooshanfekr (1390), TT1, and the other by Saeednia (1372), TT2. As the Chi-Square test indicated, there were no significant differences between the two translation’s adopted strategies in order to render aforementioned syntactic structures.
