Description:This database is important for translating 成語 chengyu (Chinese proverbs and idioms), which cannot be translated literally since they are often based on classical Chinese. For example, 臨陣磨槍, literally 'face battle sharpen spear', which means "do something at the last moment," cannot be correctly translated by MT or NMT systems based on the characters alone. The database includes a fairly large variety of English translations, as well as ranking information, literal meanings, variants, and syntactic codes.
