NYT publishes Chinese translation of story about workers who make Apple products

The New York Times

The New York Times has published a Chinese translation of its story about worker conditions inside the Chinese factories that make Apple products. "The goal was twofold: to share the content of the article with readers in China, and to solicit Chinese comments for translation into English that might prove illuminating for readers of the English-language article on NYTimes.com." Now the Times has published some of those comments, which were posted to the Chinese website that published the translation and to Weibo, a Chinese version of Twitter. The Times also is hosting a chat on its Facebook page Thursday with Charles Duhigg, one of the reporters on the series. || Related: Apple worshipper travels to China to talk to the workers who make iPhones and iPads (This American Life)
