IATE Term of the Week: Chinese New Year

January 31, 2014 11:07 am


Friday the 31st of January is the first day of the new year, according to the Chinese lunar calendar, so we have chosen “Chinese New Year” as our IATE Term of the Week. 2014 is the year of the Horse. Read about Chinese New Year celebrations and customs here. China is the EU’s biggest trading partner after the USA, and you can find more information about EU-China trade here.



We invite you to suggest the equivalent terms in the missing EU languages, or alternatives to the existing term in your language if you consider the proposed term inaccurate. Provide your answer with a reliable reference and an accurate definition and/or context if possible.

A terminologist for the language in question will revise your answer and decide whether to validate them. Given the implications of the process, a delay is to be expected.
