Read a text
We propose a selection of Chinese texts in Mandarin and translation. A colour code indicates how advanced each translation is.
For the latest translations, search through the featured article section of our homepage.
Click the ‘catalogue’ button to access our full database, and choose a text by topic, author, or keyword.
You can also use our search and filter in the right hand column.
You can register directly from the widget in the right hand column.
When you register for the first time, you will be asked to fill in a profile. The purpose of this profile is to identify you to other users, so that you can start exchanging with people who share similar interests.
Our developers are working on making this profile page more interactive – bear with us while we build it up!
To translate, simply click ‘improve translation’ under the paragraph you want to translate. Make sure you select the language you want to translate in by pressing “ENG”, “FRA”, or “ESP”.
You can switch columns as you wish. Type in your translation in the larger column, the original appears on the side. When you’re done, tick one of the boxes to choose the right level of completion, and press submit.
