From now on, hundreds of thousands of Chinese can benefit from the website by comparing the English idioms with the Chinese version. The website has been endorsed by a number of academics in disciplines of linguistics and translation. For an updated list of endorsements, click here: http://www.selbl.org/about_us_2.php
