Someone knows which one of the possible translations is more similar to the Chinese? What I mean is, the translation of www.threekingdoms.com is great but is easy to notice that they have invented a lot, but asking a Chinese friend, he said this translation on wikisource looks more similar to the original Chinese text:

Can anyone suggest me a Brewitt-Taylor edition, possibly with pinyin names?

I found these versions:
https://www.amazon.com/Romance-Three-Ki ... 1550521589

https://www.amazon.de/Romance-Three-Kin ... 8&qid=&sr=

Does anyone know about these by any chance?

I used to have this version, which is translated by him. It did have pinyin names and was perfectly fine. I'm not entirely sure what happened to my copy...
Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!
