This is the website of the research project "Wissenschaftssprache Chinesisch - Studies in the Formation of Modern Chinese Scientific Terminologies", an international effort to understand the translation of Western sciences and philosophies into China through the reconstruction of Chinese terminologies coined since the early nineteenth century. The project has been supported by the Volkswagen Foundation since December 1996. It was started simultaneously at the East Asian Department of the University of Göttingen and the Study Group for the History and Philosophy of Chinese Science and Technology at Technische Universität Berlin. In October 2000 it was relocated to its new home at the Department of Middle Eastern and Far Eastern Languages and Cultures at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg. Researches associated with the WSC-Project are based in Göttingen, Shanghai, Peking, Paris, Oslo, Winnersh (UK), Osaka, Rome, Leuven, Hong Kong, and elsewhere.
