Chinese letter - translation Hi! I have to write an email to the Chinese Academy of Sciences. A colleague of mine and me are currently working on a paper about a new Phasmatodea species and in order to do that we need pictures of similar species for comparison. The problem is Chinese scientists are very...anti-social when it comes to sharing material with non Chinese people :p So we need somebody to write it for us in Chinese in order to receive the files we need. It should be something like this: Dear Sir or Madam, My colleague and I have currently founda a new Phasmatodea species in South Korea that is related to several species whose specimen (according to according to http://phasmida.speciesfile.org) are located in your facility. In order to finish the key for the species comparison we would like to kindly ask you for a front and lateral picture of the subsequently mentioned exemplaries; Ramulus kangxianense (Chen & Wang, 2005) Ramulus baishuijiangius (Chen, 1992) Yours sincerely, XYZ (a chinese name please ;p) Thanks! ;)
