"...As in the first volume, the translation is based on a transcription from the original manuscript of the "Acta Pekinensia" in the Jesuit Roman Archives
(Jap. Sin.138) made by three Latinists in Poznan (Poland): Monika Miazek Meczynska, Ewa Jarmakowska, and Katarzyna Prychitko. A first draft translation was then made by Jesuit classicists (in Australia, Joseph Holland, John
Wilcken, John Begley, and Stan Hogan; also Gerard ]. Hughes of Campion Hall, Oxford University).
This was then revised and annotated by Paul Rule
and Claudia von Collani, who take ultimate responsibility for the text as it now appears. The Compendium was translated by Paul Rule with the assistance of Claudia von Collani. We wish to acknowledge the constant support of the Macau Ricci Institute, especially the initiators of the project, Yves Camus and Luis Sequeira, and for this and we hope subsequent volumes, the Ricci
Institute for Chinese-Western Cultural History at the University of San Francisco, under the direction of Fr. Antoni Ucerler and Dr. Wu Xiaoxin. And special thanks are due to the assiduous editor of this volume, Stephen Ford."--Introduction (vol. 2).
