  • $\begingroup$ What do you mean by Entity name? Something like Liu Cixin to 刘慈欣? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You could use google translate with Import or so. translate.google.com/m/translate#en/zh-CN/ape translates the word "ape" into simplified Chinese. All you have to do is parse the result. $\endgroup$ May 10, 2015 at 16:59

    $\begingroup$ I know, but you didn't tell you were in China, just that you're Chinese. Well, then you have to look for a translation service that is accessible to you. As far as I know neither Mathematica, nor Wolfram|Alpha do translations. $\endgroup$ May 10, 2015 at 19:04

    $\begingroup$ What is the purpose of the translation? Depending on what you need, Mathematica's WordData may be of help by giving you a definition of an English word. Try something like WordData["house", "Definitions"]. That is of course not a translation, but it may help you nonetheless, if you are trying to understand what the word means. $\endgroup$
