The volume Terminology Translation in Chinese Contexts: Theory and Practice is one of the few published outside China specifically on Chinese terminology studies. Different from Chu and Huang’s (2013) book, which focuses on the history of terminology translation in China from the Eastern-Han Dynasty (about 25 CE) up to 1949 when the People’s Republic of China was founded, the volume under review examines terminology scholarship, management, and translation in contemporary Chinese contexts, thus helping to complete the chronology of terminology work in China.
