Welcome to VerreTaal, an online database of Chinese Literature in Dutch Translation. This project is a collaboration between the Department of Chinese Studies and the Sinological Library at Leiden University and the Research Centre for Translation at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Using English as the interface language, it aims to provide a research tool for translation studies, (comparative) literary studies, (inter)cultural studies and area studies, Chinese studies and other academic fields, and last but not least, the general reader and library user.
The database lists Dutch-language, direct and relay translations of works originally written in Chinese. At present it includes book titles in poetry, fiction and non-fiction, and drama. For entries in multiple-author anthologies, individual author names, story titles, and corresponding page numbers are included, where available. Currently we are updating the database with journal publications.
Although the data have been collected with great care, the database does not claim to be exhaustive. Correspondence to the editor on omissions and inaccuracies is most welcome!
