New online resources for Chinese classicists

Launched in 2015, Dickinson Classics Online will provide resources for Chinese students and scholars of Latin and Greek. This collaboration between western and Chinese scholars will include lexica and grammars, language teaching tools, and new commentaries and translations. The first tool available on the website is a Chinese version of the Core Latin and Greek Vocabularies from the Dickinson College commentaries.

Where Chinese versions of Latin and Greek texts are available, many are translations of modern European language translations, often enfused with modern western perspectives that are not necessarily present in the original text. New Chinese translations and tools for translation will therefore be extremely valuable to both current and new generations of Chinese students and scholars of Ancient Greek and Latin.
