Chinese to English
Sep 8, 2002

Am living in China and often used www.google.com for bilingual searches when doing Chinese-to-English translations. Over the last few days:



*** cannot access www.google.com within mainland China



*** articles reporting on the ban in on-line editions of the Economist and the New York Times On-line



Am quite upset about this in practical terms, because I don\'t know of another site in which you can get such excellent search results done simultaneously in Chinese and English. Any suggestions on good sites for bilingual searches?

Really? Sep 8, 2002

If Google doesn\'t work, you may try Yahoo.

I often use cn.yahoo.com/ to do bilingual searches. Besides, the one which was recommended by Kevin in another thread www.openfind.com is also very nice.



The following is also good:

ways around Sep 8, 2002

Hi, Bruce:



Haven\'t talk to you so long!



It is so sad to hear that google is banned by Chinese government. There might be ways around, although I am not sure they will work.

I have already suffered it for a while:

The other issue which, I would like to explore further is: although Chinese authority can\'t always \"technically\" prohibit gambling activity online, but they certainly can block a lot of websites which they deem culturally ill or inappropriate for Chinese viewer or surfers. i.e.: even Google is blocked from time to time.

Yahoo is even worse than the spy software, would never recommend to any one. Sep 10, 2002

Yahoo is simply full of spy wares. Period.
