This study has carried out a detailed corpus-based research on the techniques used in the creative translation of the Pixar films with the Intertext Editor and Excel. Since some of the linguistic features of the English movie subtitles, such as the intonation of the lines, cannot be directly revealed in the Chinese version, this study has tried to unfold how those creative features are made explicit in the translation based on the subtitles of Ratatouille, Up and Coco. This study has shown the creativity of translation from the words, the syntax, and the intonation.
