I made a new website for translating Chinese news into English at chinadecoder.com. I know from the front it just looks like any old Wordpress installation, but behind the scenes is an awesome Django app that automatically pulls news from a number of Chinese sources, and provides a really convenient translation interface.
The idea is that I’ll have an excuse to keep up to date with what’s going on in China, and the articles I translate will provide some good content to drive traffic to my consulting business. Features I’m considering adding in the future include automatic Google translation of all the articles that get pulled in, just for the super curious, and user contributed translations for other likeminded people who enjoy translating stuff like this.
Still not quite sure whether I like China Decoder, chinadecoder, or chinadecoder.com as a brand. Actually I was hoping to get chinachina.com but it is being squatted.
