Two interesting sites and Google Translations

This week I had a chance to play around with two very good sites developed by Dr. Qilian Cui from Beijing, China.

The sites are and They contain a wealth of information on the Chinese translation and localization market and very interesting articles about the industry and issues related to Chinese localization.

If you clicked on the links above, you will have noticed that the sites are written in Chinese (which is not one the five languages I speak). In order to read it, I engaged the help of Google Translations. I can report that in addition to being impressed with the speed of the translation, I felt like I could understand and read with some ease the texts that were presented.

I strongly recommend a little tour of these sites.

    Thank you for this post and these interesting links. I am not sure that an automated translation tool such as google can really enable you to understand what this is all about. If you want to explore websites written in a language you do not speak, you should use a professional translation service. Be it French, English or Japanese translation, there are a few providers out there who will be able to help you.
