A Chinese translation of Effective Perl Programming

I mentioned a long time ago that a Chinese translation of Effective Perl Programming was in the works, and apparently it’s done. Someone sent me a copy of the Chinese version of the book. I can’t tell you who did it (if it’s you, let me know) and I don’t know where you can buy it (if you know, let me know). Also, I don’t know what I want to do with the copy that I have. I don’t read Chinese, so I can’t really read the book to see how well it translates, and I don’t want to keep the book as a trophy. Does someone else want the book? Is there a Chinese Perl event that would like to give it away as a prize? I’ll get Josh and I to sign it and send it along.

2021 Update A reader wrote to me to note that the name of the book is “Perl高效编程” from Pearson Education, Inc. and Post&Telecom Press publishing as Addison Wesley. It’s on TaoBao from various sellers.

A Chinese translation of Effective Perl Programming is in the works

There’s a Chinese translation of _Effective Perl Programming_ in the works. I don’t know when it will be available: the translation will take some time, then the publisher has to put it on paper, then it has to show up in stores. I don’t have any details on where or how you can buy the translation. If you know those, please let us know and we’ll post the details here (even using your referral link).

However, if you’re reading this directly, the Chinese edition might not matter to you. :)

If you know about any other translations, tell us about those too. Often the author doesn’t find out about them until they get a copy, if they ever get a copy.
