Comparing styles - who do you write like?

By Helen Wang, published

Have you tried this? http://iwl.me/
Copy and paste something you've written or translated, then press the Analyse button, and it will suggest an author you write like. I don't know how this works (or how accurate it is), but it's quite good fun.

I ran a few samples from the PR Translation Samples page through this 'analysis' and got the following results!

The Young Couple (Xiaoxiao ji) - like Charles Dickens
Them (Tamen) - like James Joyce
Da-Da-Da (Ba-ba-ba) - like Stephen King
Running through Zhongguancun - like Margaret Mitchell
The Peddlar - like James Fenimore Cooper
