Intent

As an aspiring student of translation and interpretation, this blog is a daily exercise of my translation ability. The format will be Chinese to English, my second language to my native tongue. The source material will be Chinese newspapers, bought, perused, and translated daily.

To narrow down the possible topics from the endless wellspring available, I will stick to international news concerning America. My current reading is 新京报, or The Beijing News. I will try and expand my sources as my reading/writing ability develops.

Also, I want to stick with blogger.com in case I want to expand or move the blog later. However blogspot.com is blocked in China, so I will find it difficult to format it, seeing as I can’t see what it actually looks like. But bear with me and I’ll figure out a way.
