When opening my new Halogen Oven earlier today, amongst the various racks etc was a Chinese Newspaper clipping, showing an article adjoining a picture of a military uniformed figure beside a convict / factory uniformed figure with eyes closed. The paper wasn't serving any practical purpose in the box. This reminds me of the recent 'help us' note found in the box of fire crackers made in China, where the claims are that they are in fact factory slaves, some articles also backed this information.

As the article is possibly in Chinese Hanzi, I wondered if there is any ATS'er keen to translate in case it is something of interest.

Here are both sides of the piece of newspaper though presumably the side with the picture is the article of interest.

Sounds interesting, but I know little about the Chinese language. I'm sure some here do though.

Probably an article on how your oven was made by Chinese prison labor or something.

Best to ignore the cries of the oppressed unless you wana start shopping for exclusively made in America products...

Oh wait we do the prison slave labor racket as well here, well shoot.

I am in the UK and a lot of our stuff is imported, few tech things are made here now, or anything much for that matter.

I do my best to shop ethically but when the local farmers market sells bread of a lesser standard than I or the supermarkets make at more than three times the price, economics figure in the equation as well as availability of products. Things like halogen ovens just aren't manufactured here and branded as such. In fact UK brand awareness has become increasingly less known, unless it's about local produce.

People cannot source ethically when the governments and global commercialism has dictated otherwise.

You're welcome. It IS cool, isn't it? I'd love to know what these papers really say, to find out how accurate the OCR is. I did do a spot check on various lines of the text, and the accuracy seems ok. Then, of course there is the matter of google translate, and it's accuracy.
Have you tried it on any sections of the pages that the OP provided? What are your results? We can compare notes.

Thanks for the links and translation, search on Dan Bokui fits the translation, in that another not great translation says something about him stealing in the Forbidden City, some articles from a Palace Museum then was told they were worthless and binned them, another article said something of a possible death penalty for such a crime and another said it isn't a death penalty.

Perhaps some sort of local / National folk 'hero' or well known case.

Oh well looks like nothing major or majorly sinister or of International significance that would justify placing an article in something for shipping to elsewhere.

I guess sometimes people try finding help from their injustices any way possible, making a campaign for the guy over there might not be a good idea.

If anything a little insight into the things being reported in a land known for keeping the outside world out and having strict laws.

Oh, I think it's a fascinating tidbit of local information.
Also, I would not have taken the time to dig up a Chinese OCR online,
Nice resource to have stored in my bookmarks.

I'm wishing you had more pages tucked away in your Oven Packaging!
What kind of Oven is it, by the way?

It is fascinating, an insight into Chinese reporting.

Here is a Chinese Newspaper available online, the google translator on Chrome translates the entire page, albeit not all that accurately. I couldn't find the article from 2011 on Dan Bokui on the newspaper, another search showed a picture of him being cuffed and the pic said the newspapers address.

Interestingly there is an article on Snowden on this front page, the translation sounds like it isn't a favourable stance on his actions.

The oven is just an additional fan assisted Halogen oven from Designer Habitat to cook things fast, it works well.

Clipping #1
Some dude stole some artifacts which were on loan from Hong Kong to the national palace museum, dropped 5 (of 9) on his way running out of the museum, and tried but was unsuccessful trying to sell the other 4. Police eventually caught him and recovered one of the remaining 4 artifacts. That's the left side.

The black panel is differing opinions on the actual "scope" of the crime.

There's much more details, but that's the gist of it.

Clipping #2

Some news about corruption in a construction company, the money involved, etc...

Looks like random newspaper articles.

Translated by my lovely wife.

Thank you.

Perhaps the factory worker wanted to make it known to the world about some guy being harshly punished. Kind of happy that it wasn't about factory slavery or something worse.

The original image again as it isn't showing on OP.

Or there are some goofy workers that imagine Westerners going out of there way translating crap media reports. The thought of us doing exactly this probably has them in fits of laughter.

1. It's not "Yen" it's 元, Yuan, or jyun, won, depending on the romanization you prefer. *

2. It's China, not Japan.

3. Given 2, they don't read right to left, left to right (unless it's ancient text.)


Here's a tip for you guys playing detective with a torn out business section of a foreign newspaper:

年 is Year,

月 is month,

日 is day,



so 2009年8月2日 is August 2nd, 2009.

万元 is ten thousand Yuan, so 10万元 is 10x10,000.

I've always been confused by numbers in Chinese but it's actually easy to people that are native speakers. In any case, that should give you enough to learn all the numbers and dates in the article. Have fun.

3 Years in jail and a 13,000 Yuan fine? Sorry, I don't read Simplified and it's kinda confusing as important characters draw blanks to me.

The part in black is just asking about the punishment in rhetorical fashion, like is it too severe etc.

I a missing most of the subject matter though because I don't understand a lot of it. There's another member on the forum that's fluent they could help you.
