"The translations will be updated with modern English and provide more convenience to foreigners in Beijing."

So said an official of the Foreign Affairs Office of the People's Government of Beijing Municipality. According to the office, in 2019, the translations in subway stations as well as the English broadcast on the Beijing Subway will all be updated. Some of the subway names were translated under a different standard in the past, which have made visitors confused. At the start of 2019, subway Line 6 and Line 8 will test the translations and English broadcast, and by the end of 2019, all metro lines will implement the updated versions of the English translations and voice broadcast.
