Anti’s English Blog: Translating Public Writings of Chinese Intellectuals

Chinese journalist-blogger Michael Anti (ZHAO JING) wrote on his Chinese blog:

From today on, I will translate the latest focus of discussions by Chinese intellectuals on http://mranti.blog.comÔºànow changed to http://mranti.blogneo.com/Ôºâ. The original length of the Chinese articles is about 1500 characters. I do not limit the selection of camps. To make it easy for classification and search, I will carefully choose the following labels which they self-claim but are also accepted by others to label them: governmental scholars, Marxists, Mao leftists, new leftists, democrats, libertarians, constitutionalists, cultural conservatives, political conservatives, liberal conservatives, environmental leftists, women’s rights activists, science-ists etc. What I try to do is to display the full spectrum of Chinese political thought, and use professional standards to choose, edit and translate these writings. No matter what they say, it will be the real voices of Chinese intellectuals today.

从今天开始,我会在http://mranti.blog.com (改成了http://mranti.blogneo.com/)翻译最新形成焦点的中国知识分子言论,每篇中文原文在1500字左右。派别选择没有限制,我会慎重地用:官方学者、马克思主义者、毛左派、新左派、民主派、自由派、宪政派、文化保守主义者、政治保守主义者、自由保守主义者、环保左派、女权主义者、科学主义者等等他们自称并且也得到大家公认的标签来标注他们,便于归类和查询。我试图展现的是中国政治思想的全部光谱,在选择言论和翻译的时候,我会用专业精神客观地编辑和转译,无论他们怎么说,这就是当下中国知识分子的真实声音。
