   Since its founding, Yilin Press has been committed to introducing "first-class writers, first-class works through first-class translations". It strives to disseminate the best ideas of mankind by introducing world classics and contemporary works to Chinese readers. According to the data provided by Openbook Data Ltd., "Yilin Classics" is one of the largest series of world literature in China in terms of the number of titles available and total sales volume. Chinese writers consider "Modern Classics" to be a series that enlightens Chinese readers by filling a gap in works available to Chinese readers. "Humanities and Society" series and "Yilin Biographies" have established their brand names. "Yilin Contemporaries" also enjoys great popularity among a vast reading audience. Due to their great influence, some of the bestsellers such as Ulysses, A la recherche du temps perdu, and My Life have become legends in the Chinese publishing industry.

   Since its initial issue in 1979, Translations, the brand leader periodical of foreign literature in China, has won the National Periodical Award three times in a row.

   Yilin Press will maintain its advantage as professional translation publisher, enhance its international cooperation, and present Chinese readers and foreign readers with the best and latest works.
