New initiatives in China launched by HarperCollins.
HarperCollins Publishers Worldwide has announced a series of new initiatives in China.
HarperCollins has signed a collaboration agreement with The People's Literature Publishing House, with the support of the General Administration of Press and Publication (GAPP). The agreement reportedly calls for new and classical works by Chinese authors to be translated and published overseas. According to HarperCollins, five Chinese classic titles will initially be published for the English-speaking market.
In addition Swordbird, a story written by 12-year-old Nancy Yi Fan, will be published in February 2007 in English by HarperCollins Children's Books and in Chinese by The People's Literature Publishing House.
The company has also announced the launch of Cidian.cn, an online Collins English-Chinese dictionary service featuring a full English-Chinese translation dictionary and an English dictionary designed specifically for students learning English.
