For the unstable political situation, the lack of talented translators and the dullness of the publication world, Japan failed finishing large-scale translation business in Beijing under the Japan occupation. Japanese classical literature works were translated premeditatedly in Beijing modern science library though, on Japanese contemporary literature, there was no organization which bundled up the translation. Translators' motive was various. Some engaged in Translation for Japanese's request, such as Qian Daosun (钱稻孙). Some for earning a living, such as Zhang Wojun (张我军). There were also translators expressing feeling and mind by translation, like Zhou Zuorena (周作人). Many translators tended to choose short and easy literary works and translated quickly to make a living, so that the translation quality was poor totally. However, we found some important translation works in the history of Chinese translation of Japanese literature were also created at that time. From the perspective of content, few translation work advocated war, but the works themselves and the translation behavior itself were embedded in "Sino Japanese goodwill" and used to promote Japan's war policy no matter what the translator's own motives.
