Cultural researcher Wei Shizhao started learning Shui script in his childhood. So far, his modern Chinese translations of texts in Shui script have amounted to nearly three million characters. The Shui script is the unique pictographic writing system used by the Shui people in southwest China to keep records of their culture. In 2006, it was listed as a national intangible cultural heritage. In Sandu County, preservation and research of the Shui script began in the 1980s. Researchers at a local Shui script cultural institute have been engaged in the collection and digitalization of relevant texts. Authorities are also working to register the Shui script in the UNESCO Memory of the World list. (Xinhua/Ou Dongqu)
