Review request for a few translated Mandarin tracklists

Anton Stroganov
I added a few releases by Lei Ting (雷婷) and Gan Ya Dan (甘雅丹) over the
last two days. I got the track lists from scans online, but the
translations of track titles into english were often missing or very
wrong. I did my best to correct them with educated guesswork and
google translate, but I would love to see someone who actually knows
Mandarin to review the translated track listings.

Artist links:

Lei Ting
http://musicbrainz.org/artist/85f6af30-4e0a-4fd7-9747-576ffe15b7c4

Gan Ya Dan
http://musicbrainz.org/artist/b6f97078-8519-4d26-9eba-0a2c8e1369c0

All releases by both artists were added by me, so they all need review.

Thank you!

Hi Anton,.

Just a quick note.
If the translations that you're making are not official (ie there's no existing release with that tracklist) , you will need to classify them as pseudo-releases.

There are no releases with english-only track listings. A number of these releases list both english and chinese versions of track titles on the back cover however.

Then, make sure they are pseudo - releases.

If the release has multiple langages, it's not possible at the moment to have both. You should pick the most suitable (i'm guessing mandarin).

I can help you check the translations, but I see that there are quite
a few releases. It would be helpful if you list the ones you think
seem to be the worst so that I can focus on those.
