Translation is possible; it's not transliteration.
Forget the original form; get the original idea!
Getting the idea,you understand the original;
Forgetting the form, you express the idea.
Be true to the idea common to two languages;
Be free from the form peculiar to the original!
Idea and form are two sides of one thing.
Get the common idea, forget the peculiar form:
That's the way of translation.
The translation should give a complete transcript of the ideas of the original work.
The style and manner of writing should be of the same character with that of the original.
The translation should have all the ease of original composition.

It was Miss Murdstone who was arrived, and a gloomy-looking lady she was; dark, like her brother, whom she greatly resembled in face and voice; and with very heavy eyebrows, nearly meeting over her large nose, as if, being disabled by the wrongs of her sex from wearing whiskers, she had carried them to that account.She brought with her two uncompromising hard black boxes, with her initials on the lids in hard brass nails.When she paid the coachman she took her money out of a hard stell purse, and she kept the purse in a very jail of a bag which hung upon her arm by heavy chains, and shut up like a bite.

BEFORE THE CURTAIN
As the Manager of the Performance sits before the curtain on the boards, and looks into the Fair, a feeling of profound melancholy comes over him in his survey of the bustling place. There is a great quantity of eating and
drinking, making love and jilting, laughing and the contrary, smoking, cheating, fighting, dancing, and fiddling: there are bullies pushing about, bucks ogling the women, knaves picking pockets, policemen on the looking out, quacks(other quacks,plague take them!) bawling in front of their booths, and yokels looking up at the tinseled dancers and poor old rugged tumblers, while the light-fingered folk are operating upon their pockets behind. Yes, this is V ANITY FAIR: not a moral place certainly; nor a merry one,though very noisy. Look at the faces of the actors and buffoons when they come off from their business; and Tom Fool washing the paint off his cheeks before he sits down to dinner with his wife and the little Jack Puddings behind the canvas. The curtain will be up presently, and he will be turning over his head and heels, and crying,"How are you?"( William Makepeace Thackeray, Vanity Fair)
