this is not for someone with elementary Chinese skills.. one reviewer gave a bad review just because of his mediocre Chinese and wishes there is pinyin. If you are serious about starting a career in translation or want to get a basic understanding of underlying principles behind Chinese English translation, then this is the book for you. The authors had done a good job of explaining why good translation is a no easy task but requires lot of skills and knowledge with both the target and source language. What I especially like about the book is the fact that after every chapter there are exercises to reinforce some of the fundamental topics covered in a particular chapter. The exercises come with solutions at the end of the book. The only reason I gave a 4 stars is because I think there is still room for improvement and I hope there will be more books in the market that deal with Chinese to English translation though there are plenty of English to Chinese.
