Hello, everyone!

Have just begun a contract to translate a Chinese book about the history of Chinese clothing/fashion from ancient times up to the early 20th century.

Urgently need one or more online dictionaries/glossaries for reference re:

--- Names of ancient Chinese clothing including basic accessories
--- Ideally, from Chinese-to-English
--- Text plus pictures would be nice!

Can anyone suggest how I can locate such resources?

Many thanks.

Bruce

Excellent recommendation! May 10, 2009

I really appreciate this recommendation.

The dictionary is unfortunately for modern dress. But the pictures + Chinese text for ancient clothing at http://culture.dresschina.com/ancient_dress/ will be very useful.

Thank you very much!

I have to admit it, Lai An, this is a basic place to start but a good one. I had tried, unfortunately searching for "ancient Chinese clothing"...
