China approves official translation guide for wine names
An official guide listing standard Chinese translations of key wine terms will come into effect later this year, according to Decanter China.
The final version of the Norm of Terminology Translation of Imported Wines has been approved by the Chinese Ministry of Commerce. It is due to be implemented in September 2015.
The regulation, categorised as a ‘recommended industrial standard’, is the first of its kind in the Chinese wine market. Previously, there were only translation guidelines released by trade bodies of some major wine regions.
