Translation project: representative German legal literature

At the institute the translation project "representative German legal literature" is being supervised. This translation project has run successfully for more than ten years. It serves Chinese lawyers that cannot read German legal literature in its original to have an access to german legal literature. Moreover, the traditionally important influence of German Law in China is strenghtend. The translation project is guided by German and Chinese lawyers and holds sessions yearly to resolve translation problems and choose the literature that should be translated. The translators have the opportunity to discuss the translation with the German authors in i.e. study stays in Germany for several months. The project is supported by the DAAD by travel scholarshops for the translators and other support. The translated books have found a big resonance among Chinese experts and partially had to be published repeatedly.
