SourceJuice.com - Version 2 as a platform
So having identified some (we know there are many more) of the problems and pains of getting trustworthy information we set about a mission to create an innovative platform that has never been pieced together before in this manner. A platform to enable information transparency. A platform on the Internet that provides the power of information by using innovative technologies that were combined and refined to create a central place for information in multiple languages for information that was either inaccessible (most didn't know how to even find it) or could not be understood (was in Chinese and a translated version was not available).
So what does this all mean?
Well, we decided to create a level of transparency that was unavailable before by translating the bulk of available Chinese government content that was related to business - from finance topics provided by Xinhua news that was not being translated into other languages to notices put forth by China Customs to commodity prices provided by the various regional ministries of commerce in China. We do the translations by using advanced translation software that learns and gets better over time. After translating hundreds of thousands of documents, we decided to put it under one powerful search engine that enabled the speedy and highly accurate access to find and discover this wealth of information and knowledge. Additionally, we decided that our readers would benefit from timely updates so we added web spiders to our technology mix to rapidly collect updates and news and translate them as quickly as possible to provide them to our readers. The combination, which we call the platform, is SourceJuice.com - a place that will be constantly updated, improved, made better, and that is becoming the trusted place to get information from trusted sources.
We understand that our translated content does not replace the value of human translation. We also understand that our translation creates, at times, something that is neither entirely legible nor easy to understand. However, we believe that having this capability allows our readers to, at the very least, get an idea or overview of the content that is being produced to identify if it is of importance to them in their business matters - basically a level of transparency that was never provided before. Additionally, we provide the original source for every translated article, announcement, and or press that is provided on our site for our readers so that they can take the original source as the reference and or citing to be used as they need (Note: On every article that is translated we provide a button called "show original source" that will open up the original website page where our automated systems pulled and then translated the material for our users). Having something is better than nothing is what we believe. Having information where previously there was none or having information in your language when previously it was only in Chinese is powerful and as information is - informative!
By being careful with our selection of source material which we call "Trusted Sources*" we take effort to ensure we are providing our readers legitimate information from reliable and trusted sources of information (*An example of a "Trusted Source" of information is China's Ministry of Commerce which is an official government organization in China that provides press and material regarding government and business related activities in China as well as abroad). We do this so you don't have to, so you don't have to spend weeks or months or possibly never find the more than 200 sources (and growing) we have identified and presented on this platform. We aim to provide reliable, timely, accessible, and powerful information for those doing business in and with China.
In summary, SourceJuice.com is a platform for knowledge, a platform for information to have symmetry in multiple languages, a platform to empower those doing business to research. A place where technology is used to facilitate the transfer of information and knowledge. A place where an idea become a reality and challenges were tackled with creative thinking and unrelenting execution. A place where we are learning, improving and thanking people like you for taking the time to visit and recommending this site to others as well as linking to us (this really helps us) so that more people in search can come to SourceJuice.com to find their next piece of information to facilitate or empower their business, their work, and or their projects.
