Model Driven Software Development in Chinese

Prices on the chinese bookmarket are very surprising to most westerners: Chinese translations of textbooks are very cheap compared to their english originals. So I sometimes accept the 8 week shipping from China to save some money while polishing my Chinese.

Today I was surprised to find that one of the standard books about MDSD, written by my itemis colleague Markus Völter, has been published in a Chinese version this year: 模型驱动软件开发:技术、工程与管理(国外计算机科学经典教材) .

The Chinese price is about 40 Yuan, which is 4(!) EUR.

Obviously, they translated it from the English version, since Markus was turned into an “American” author along the way….
