Our project

The Marco Polo Project website combines the functions of an online magazine, a language learning website, and a multilingual social networking platform. Users can register a profile, submit texts they like (in Chinese), and collectively translate the texts submitted by themselves or other users through a wiki system.

The Marco Polo Project is a tool to improve China and Chinese literacy on a global scale.

By providing crowd-sourced translations of contemporary Chinese writing, we give an international readership the opportunity to discover and explore Chinese perspectives. We also provide a platform for emerging translators and advanced language students to practice their skills, and give them motivation to study further.

Our project aligns with the general principles of the collaborative economy.
