(Last updated: 08/24/04 )
Welcome to my table-tennis site. Most of the material on this site are translated from Chinese articles that appear on various Chinese websites or publications. For those interested in reading the originals, I recommend visiting www.fishtt.com, www.cn-tt.com, and http://sports.sina.com.cn/others/pingpang.shtml. The excellent Table Tennis World is the source of many in-depth articles that are less time-sensitive. Translating from Chinese to English is not an exact science, since the two languages have fundamentally different sentence constructs. Also, the Chinese have many table-tennis terms that have no simple equivalents in English. I try to strike a balance between a very literal translation (which is cumbersome to read) and a very figurative one (that may be considered too loose by some experts). I hope I have succeeded.
