A few months ago I was approached by an editor at Insider Monkey to start publishing my articles on the site. Of course, I said yes because I love the information that is on the site and have used it regularly in the past when researching my some of my previous articles.
My first article was published on the site today for any of you out there who would like to view it. The Proposed Going Private Transaction At Dole and Its Shareholders Fighting Back. The same article that I posted to this blog last week.
As you might have noticed at the top of the page is now a translation page where you can translate the entire blog into many different languages. I found something similar to this a few days ago but could not get it to work on the blog so I enlisted the help of my brother and he got the translation page working, thanks a lot Kev. This also means that the short-lived Mandarin Value Investing Journey is also not now needed and will be going away. I am sure the 20 of you who visited the mostly untranslated site will miss it dearly :).
A quick update on where I am at with the process of my article series. I have now finished up the first two articles of the series and as you know I had planned to write articles on one or two more companies and then do a conclusion article. Two of the companies I was planning on writing articles on I have been asked not to by the person who recommended them to me because he is planning on writing articles about them. I am still going to read those companies annual reports and other filings but will not be writing articles about them so this has turned into a three-part series covering the two companies I have already written articles about and the conclusion article where I decide which of them to buy. I will hopefully have the whole series posted as soon as possible.

As you know I have been learning Mandarin for the past several months and yesterday Valueprax and I were talking on Twitter yesterday and after telling him that I am learning Mandarin he came up with a fantastic idea. He said that I should translate my blog into Mandarin to get myself out there further. Up to this point, I have not been able to find any Mandarin language value investing blogs so this is another way to get myself out there. This will also help me learn Mandarin faster, get myself out there to potential value firms in Asia which may lead to potentially getting hired or at the very minimum hopefully gaining a new audience in Asia.
The new Mandarin language version of Value Investing Journey is below and I am currently undertaking the process of translating the entire blog into Mandarin so if you are curious what the blog would look like in Mandarin feel free to take a look. If you know anyone who reads Mandarin and is interested in investing I would really appreciate if you could pass this link on. Thank you and I hope you enjoy.
