Nicky Harman is still excited while talking about the Chinese literary works she wants to translate, even after nearly 15 years of translating Chinese writing into English.

The British translator is now on a tour of Europe to promote communication between Chinese authors and their Western counterparts, and Han Dong, an avant-garde Chinese poet and novelist from eastern China's Jiangsu province, is also on that tour.

Harman, who started Chinese language studies in 1968, and once taught translation at the Imperial College of London, says she fell in love with Han's writings when she came to China in 2003.
