Well, the time has come to do exactly that. Ardik has figured out how to get around the technical obstacles, and he was able to upload the Chinese translation (Traditional Han) that the volunteer team worked so hard to finish. He also made it possible to choose the Chinese translation as a setting in your profile. In other words, it's now finally possible to view and use the BookCrossing.com website in Chinese.
The translation team is still checking all the nooks and crannies of the site and making corrections. These corrections will be implemented over the coming weeks. The Supply Store will soon offer bookplates in Chinese. In other words, this is a work in progress. And that progress is a lovely thing to see.
Thank you, Chinese translation volunteers! Your work was not wasted; many people will be able to enjoy BookCrossing because of it.
