Yes, I'll add to the bottom of the English definition after another week.

Thanks for everybody’s contribution! Very glad to see that we work together to make a better translation for Cloud Native!


I’ve made a further comment on the revision. Let’s allow one more week to finalize this. What’s the best place to publish it? Maybe as part of [1] or create a separate file?

Hi Dan and all,

Some good revisions were made to the draft. I think it's looking good and a much better read.

Some thiughts. I don't think we need to translate every words literally. For example, in my opinion, 容错性 for resilient and 可靠性 for robust are better translations than 韧性 and 健壮 respectively in the context. We also need a better tranalation for "democratize state-of-the-art patterns". 计算模式民主化 sounds strange to me.

I'd also suggest that once we have a stable version,  we send it to this list and get the final input and approvals from everyone (the Chinese speakers).

We have a request from some of our Chinese members to improve the quality of the translation of our definition of Cloud Native from what we included in a handout at the LC3 event in Beijing this week. This proposed text is from Jack at Alibaba. Could I please request the Chinese speakers on the list to make any corrections you think appropriate.

Cloud native technologies empower organizations to build and run scalable applications in modern, dynamic environments such as public, private, and hybrid clouds. Containers, service meshes, microservices, immutable infrastructure, and declarative APIs exemplify this approach.


These techniques enable loosely coupled systems that are resilient, manageable, and observable. Combined with robust automation, they allow engineers to make high-impact changes frequently and predictably with minimal toil.


The Cloud Native Computing Foundation seeks to drive adoption of this paradigm by fostering and sustaining an ecosystem of open source, vendor-neutral projects. We democratize state-of-the-art patterns to make these innovations accessible for everyone.
