Wikipedia article on the National Taiwan Library (國立中央圖書館臺灣分館) translated into Interlingua

Friday, July 25, 2008

Another article just about to go up on the did you know...? section of the Main Page (oh wait, it just went up a minute ago) that I've translated into Interlingua to bring attention, however slight, to international auxiliary languages. This article was admittedly quite boring. After getting home there was quite an interesting article that I could have done but it had already gone up a bit over an hour before which only leaves maybe three hours at best on the Main Page and I had some other things to do first, so I was left with this library article to do.

Personally I would love to go there (been to Taiwan twice but not for that long) to look at the documents on the Japanese colonial period, because I've read quite a bit about it here and it's interesting that Taiwan really doesn't hate Japan at all (Korea does for the most part) in spite of being ruled by them during the same period of time.

Well, actually I have some idea of why that's the case but I'd rather not get into the subject just now. Part of it has to do with the smaller distance between Korea and Japan, and the other one has to do with the fact that Taiwan was colonized a lot more and certainly wasn't in the position to turn their back on any potential allies as a country.

Now to the article:

The National Taiwan Library is the oldest public library in Taiwan. Founded in 1914, the library is home to a large collection of documents concerning the history, culture, politics and geography of Taiwan.

Le Bibliotheca National de Taiwan es le plus vetule public bibliotheca in Taiwan. Fundate in 1914, le bibliotheca es le loco de un grande collection de documentos super le historia, cultura, politica e geographia de Taiwan.


The library was founded in 1914 during the Japanese colonial period as the Imperial Taiwan Library (台湾總督府図書館 Taiwan satoshi toku fu toshokan) on the order of governor Sakuma Samata. The library's first permanent home on Bo'ai Road (博愛路) in Taipei was destroyed in a US bombing raid during World War II.

After the Nationalists took over control of the island following Japan's defeat in WWII, the library was renamed the Taiwan Provincial Library (traditional Chinese: 臺灣省圖書館; pinyin: Táiwān-Shěng Túshūguǎn) and moved to temporary accommodation.

The current name of the library was chosen in 1973, with the full official title being National Central Library, Taiwan Branch (traditional Chinese: 國立中央圖書館臺灣分館; pinyin: Guólì Zhōngyāng Túshūguǎn Táiwān Fēnguǎn). After outgrowing the premises in Taipei, the library was relocated to the 8-23 Memorial Park in Jhonghe, Taipei County in 2004.

There are 210,000 documents from the Japanese era (1895-1945) and the collection has been continuously added to since then. The library's aim is to provide a dedicated research centre for people interested in Taiwan Studies... (more follows from here in English)
