Special Report:   2007 NPC & CPPCC

Major documents for this year's NPC and CPPCC sessions, including the government's work report, have been translated into several foreign languages. Let's have a look at how experts there are working on this project at Compilation and Translation Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.

Experts are making a final sprint to the finishing line.

Tong Xiaohua, translator of Compilation and Translation Bureau, said, "When the documents were finalized and sent to us, we finished translating them overnight."

But it was not an easy job, as new terminologies emerge each year.

Working alongside with Tong are a group of foreign copy-editors, who polish the already translated documents.

A German translator said, "Our language is specialized and easy to make out."

A variety of major documents have been translated into six foreign languages, including English, French and Spanish.

And for the first time, English versions of Standing Committee work reports and law drafts are available.
