A collection of books containing English translations of public signs in Shenzhen is available to visiting foreigners. The book contain a total of 1.3 million words, including a guidebook and instruction book covering 13 categories. And a simplified version will be released by the end of October.

The book was compiled by Shenzhen Translators association and was reviewed for mistakes and correction by a panel of language experts headed by season translators for the foreign ministry. The book compilation marks the effort of the city bilingual public sign system, to end the misleading translations that causes inconvenience for tourists coming to Shenzhen.

Before the Universiade will happen new signs will be installed, replaced and standardized in major roads and public areas.
