Have you ever wanted to search Chinese news, but could not because you can’t read the characters? Well, thanks to a post from Danwei, you can now navigate your way through the Chinese language maze.
The secret is a new service from Adsotrans, the China Search Robot. This search engine (in beta at present) allows users to input search terms in English, and to get results in Chinese, together with a machine-generated summary in English. If there is further interest, translation services (machine or human) can be provided for complete articles.
There are obvious limitations to the service but it is, nevertheless, a useful and very welcome tool and has been added to our “China News” links section.
